Center Section

 Installed and ready for lacquer
Now the middle section is completed and intalled. I get this rusted effect by wiping down the steel with muriatic acid.
The home owner will apply two or three coats of  "phylon",
 odd bits of this and that from around my shop
a lacquer based coating originally developed for masonry but works well with metal.  The final product will have the look of leather.

I can now work on the lowest section!  It will have the same elements as the upper two sections but I will add some brass for flash.  Eventually, I will get photos of the completed job, all lacquered and ready for company.

This is an incredibly beautiful piece of metal artwork Jerry. I would have bought that for my staircases without hesitation!
