Re: Top handrails
I don't mind the critique. The head has its own beauty. There is
minimal teak now and it is a wash area....Plus, the plate is I feel
father indistinct. I did file round the corners..does that count? I
can get small cut pieces of stainless at a metal salvage and I don't
like to cut this metal. True, round would be better. Also, I think
stainless and teak go well together artistically. Finally, longevity
of a thin piece of teak is questionable, then a thicker piece is too
bulky for the area and heavy.....To tell the truth I never thought
about teak. Too late now...(we all know that is a lie).
