These veneered teak hand rails run from the entryway to the teak kitchen and then to the utility room of this Center City Philadelphia home. The skirtboard has been extended to the floor here. The quarter-sawn teak veneer is a man-made product from Brookside Veneers that is nearly indistinguishable from the real veneer. Using such veneers allows us to give the dramatic appearance of the exotic veneers without actually contributing to deforestation of those exotic tropical woods. Since we needed to offset the tempered glass panel due to the necessary placement of the teak hand rails, we used stainless steel standoffs and edge grips from C. R. Laurence to anchor the glass panel. We also used larger stainless steel standoffs to secure the hand rails to the walls.
