The right railings, spindles and newel posts can become decorative accents across the exterior of a home. Paying careful attention to these details can transform a standard porch or staircase into a statement piece, or a deck into a stunning masterpiece. 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 cedar 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 cedar 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 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. Natural flare bottom cedar posts, which resemble the base of a tree, make a statement at the base of a staircase, as porch posts or even as vertical house corners.
