Custom ADA handrail

Number seven out of the eight handrails I’m making.
I started out this morning with everything fitup and ready to weld.

The reason this is a welding project on a piece of plywood?? Two reasons, first because the job is on site and the deck can’t be burned, second the template for this was drawn out on the plywood to assist fitup.

Eight welds later and voila! Handrail complete. Here it is after a black primer coat.

Since it was a custom fitup, the total time spent creating this was just over 5 hours. Welding is definitely the quickest part of whole project, the time.is really spent on getting all.the cuts as close to perfect as possible.

Only one more handrail and they all go to the painters to be painted then installed for the big reveal!

Thanks for reading.
More to come.
