This project was part of a "demolition" found in a local dumpster. Recycling the metal to be used as a front porch railing.

The railing had several main corner supports bent as a result of the tear out, hand rails were also bent requireing a modification to the "2" 10' pieces that had been bent in half to fit in dumpster. The angle on the porch and hand placement for hieght was modified, cutt off as excess from material in good condtion and rewelded. Neodymium magnets used for alignment and measurement.

New 1" sqaure steel was inserted into 1 1/4" corner support inserts to allow for removal for future maintenance. Project was completed just in time for Christmas 2012
