Default Rail Picture Overload

Just some pics of Hand rails that I have built in the last 6 years or so. I can't take credit for the artistic design of most, just the actual fabrication and making them fit! And sometimes, trying to come up with the way to make what the boss and customer wants. I usually have little say in how the design actually looks or is made, but sometimes can influence the outcome a little.
Please enjoy the pics.
The rail in the middle three was installed by putting spindles into holes in the stone steps and pouring lead to secure. I was always told not to mix water in with molten lead, and I did find out why on this job. I was very fortunate that day, and only had a couple of small burns when the lead exploded back out of the hole.
The last picture is of a curved deck that we were building, and was almost done, and the customer had got tired of the building delays, and canceled the job. The deck looks real good on top of overstock Ibeams in the yard waiting for a new home.
