Having a replica Victorian porch railing made?
We are working on several parts of our 1880's Victorian home just outside of Albany, NY. The thing that is really throwing me for a loop is getting our old porch railing replicated. I have a 3 foot segment of the original railing in tact and would LOVE to just hand it off/mail it off to someone to have it replicated.
I was trying to stay local, but have gotten quotes in excess of 10K JUST for the railing itself! Holy moly!
Are there any reputable mail order/commercial dealers in this kind of woodworking that are reputable and more economic? It's maybe 30ft. of railing needed and 60 spindles--very short and squat.
Thanks in advance for your help and expertise!!
