The base and top have stainless rods welded to metal plate which were inset into the wood rail and floor. Then hollow stainless tubes were slid onto these, assembled onsite.

Lisa Frederick added this to Home Styles: Split Personality
Here's one more cool railing treatment. The metal spindles are subtle enough not to stop the eye, which is essential if you want to blur the boundaries between two spaces.Tell us: What do you love about your split-level house?More: Cape-Cod Style Across AmericaGetting it Wright: Today's Prairie StyleMountain Homes: Big Design for Majestic Places
If you've moved into a traditional split-level home, try sleek white and charcoal gray paint to create a modern look. Furniture that plays off the rectangular lines makes the look seem intentional.
