A few years ago while building a vacation cabin up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains a discussion arose between company owners Lawrence Smith and Daniel Sims about the design for the porch and stair railings. There are quite a number of different styles and materials that can be used and we wanted our choice to be the best. After settling on a “twig” style we worked hard on using the readily available natural Rhododendron finally deciding that when finished it would be too difficult to keep clean and would always be a source of splinters and small pieces of debris. The solution was clear once we spent some time in the shop and came up with the first “Iron Twig” design. It was beautiful, clean, and stronger than the wood twig design, adding the eye catching piece to the cabin that we needed. Now we are constantly adding to the original railing selection with tables, other furniture items, custom “one of a kind” pieces and bath accessories.
