Rustic Cabin Railing

Here are some photos of a rustic cabin porch railing that I recently completed for a client in Vermont. The tall supporting posts are peeled Hemlock from the cabin owners land. The horizontal posts are Cedar and the inner rungs are made from peeled Maple saplings. Finally, the remaining twigs were cut from the same Hemlock tree that was used for one of the supports. The Maple pieces are tenoned in for extra strength and durability, and the Cedar is connected using long timber bolts. This rustic railing was constructed on site, in a remote location with no electricity. The natural rustic look adds to the overall beauty of this small log cabin. While on location I delivered 4 rustic slab benches to be used around the fire pit, which sits next to a lovely private swimming pond. In the past I have done other projects on this cabin, such as a cedar ladder, a loft railing, bunk beds, benches, tables and more. This cabin in Stowe Vermont is available for nightly rentals, all year round. Visit for more details. This cabin definitely falls into the Go Rustic category!
