I have a small, partial hand rail that ends at a newel post. (Long, story,
but original owners chopped up stairwell of 130-year-old house to create a
bathroom, leaving just a small part of the original handraild sticking out.
I need to install a handrail on the other side (safety). I want to get the
same "old time" shine on the other handrail. What is this finish? What's the
modern day equivelant?
It's stained dark, then coated in something shiny that looks
inpenetrable---and it's not poly.
