The right railings, spindles and newel posts can become decorative accents throughout your home and its exterior. Paying careful attention to these details can transform a standard porch or staircase into a statement piece, or a balcony into the focal point of the house. At Heartwood Mills, we specialize in railings, spindles and newel posts created from hand-hewn Northern White Cedar. This wood in particular is perfect for outdoor applications due to its durability and natural resistance to harsh weather and damaging pests. However, we can supply these items in Pine and other wood species as well.
Cedar Twig Railings
Our twig railings are truly works of art. Our skilled craftspeople create them using Cedar twigs gathered from the Cedar bogs near our mill in northern Michigan. No twig railing is ever the same. Each one is custom designed and crafted for indoor and outdoor applications.
Hand-hewn Cedar posts can provide structure support while lending style to your indoor and outdoor spaces. If you’re looking for added character and visual interest, our flare butt posts enhance the natural look and feel of a log home.
