The Bailey Railing

The Bailey railing was designed by my father Larry Gindlesperger and built in his blacksmith shop Eagle and Anvil Forge where I was his apprentice. The clients were seeking a wrought iron classic French old world wrought iron motif to complement their estate. We built scroll jigs so all scrolls were uniform and consistent. A collaboration with the carpenters ensured a seamless connection between the steel and the wooden hand rail. The interior spiral staircase was forged and fabricated in sections, heated and bent around a radius jig in the shop and installed onsite with discreet mechanical fasteners. The newel posts were bent in a similar fashion around a tighter radius. Exterior balconies were hot dipped galvanized then powder coated.
