It looks great, but it doesn’t meet the residential building code in the US. The problem isn’t the winder, but the length of the railing. The code says that the top of the rail needs to extend beyond the top nosing. In this case, the code actually makes sense because the extension allows someone to grab the rail BEFORE they begin descending the stair.

I’m not saying this as an architect, but as someone who broke his back because of a short railing.

I would like to say that it looks great! I’m sure it took an incredible amount of time to complete. Well done.

Beautiful craftsmanship on this railing, great attention to detail in duplicating the components.

Isn’t this just STUNNING! I’ve been wanting to have the railing on the stairs redone in my house for the last five years, but haven’t been able to afford it. After seeing the beauty in this rich wood grain, I will hold out and keep saving. I want my railing to look as much like this as possible. What an outstanding artist you are!!!

Looks great and is very similar to the railings we have here in Norway. As for the point made by John, I can see the sense in it, but in practice we usually grab the ball when we reach the bottom, which gives us pretty good stability as we exit the stairs and our hand can swing easily on the round surface of the top knob.
