Project Profile


The following project profile was for a summer home near Flagstaff, Arizona. It is a newly built home in a golf resort style community.

The railing in this home was built to match the railing in the clubhouse of the community. The exterior railing is built from hammered tubing with a forged cap rail.

The interior railing uses hammered solid square pickets, tubing posts and a forged cap rail.

Interior railing detail

The interior railing bollards were forged with a flattened detail to differentiate the railing from the clubhouse. The bollards on the interior railing die into the floor with no bottom rail on the railing. The post caps were made to match the clubhouse also but were made specifically for this project. All of the railing in the house was finished with a Japanese brown patina.

Copper stove hood

The homeowner wanted their wine room door to have traditional and organic elements. We submitted an original design for the wine room door, which was modified by the designer. We modified the design again to fit the owner’s budget.

The pickets have a swaged detail in the center and they penetrate the hand punched horizontal bars. The pickets also have hand forged spears.

The vine was intertwined in between the traditional framework. The flowers and leaves were individually formed using stake repoussé. A custom casing was made to frame the jamb of the door in the opening. The door was finished with a Japanese brown patina. It was put on heavily to create some black streaks and many “runs” in the patina. This gives it more of a wood grain color, which matches nearby cabinets.


FirescreensThe fire screens were built for the master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms. The guest bedroom design was based on a previous fire screen April had found. The master bedroom fire screen was based on a preliminary design for the wine room door. It is centered around an acanthus leaf which used stake repoussé to form it.
