I was involved in a few of these restoration projects in the past. I rarely took photos, but I did take a few crappy pics of this job. I had to duplicate the existing carving on the site. All the newel post caps and trim, along with the scrollwork under the handrail were carved on my bench. The 2 posts and 1/2 post for the top landing were to be carved on my bench as well, but the contractor went ahead and installed them. I had to kneel and sit on a bucket to carve the posts in place. Red oak was chosen to save money, which made it difficult for me. White oak was used originally in most of these old homes for it’s beauty, durability and it carves much better than red oak. I was wrapping it up, not finished here. I didn’t take pics of the 1st and top landing work.
