End Posts for Gallery Rail provide a finished termination to the gallery. Rod inserts post just half-way. Brass Rail may sag if a longer distance, than the recommended 6” – 12” spacing between posts, is used.
Gallery Posts are raw unfinished - solid brass. See link above for additional information.Theycan be polished to a shiny glow or left to age naturally. Many customers color the brass to suit their needs. Although we do-not offer this option, if you search online there are various brass coloring techniques and solutions available.
Best and easiest attachment method. Machine screw inserts through hole from underneath mounting surface and screws into bottom of post. Nickel-colored machine screws included. Machine screw is slotted for both a flat-tipped or Philips screw driver.
Drill hole through wood surface, insert screws from underneath of surface, through hole and thread into bottom of post.
The gallery rail can be used on stone such as marble or granite provided holes are predrilled at post locations. Machine screws are inserted from under-side of stone, through hole and into base of post.
Screw projects 3/8", from bottom of post, to screw down into top of wood surface.
Cannot be used in conjunction with wall mount posts
Cannot be used on stone surfaces.
This installation method is difficult, requiring extra manipulation of rod and post head when inserting rod. Top mounting will not work if using with wall mount posts. If mounting from top we recommend using Cabinet Railing Posts, as these mount from the top to provide an easier application.
Install all posts and rods which fit easily.
Tight fitting rods require extra attention: Cut rod slightly short. Slide rod into post. As rod is slightly short, additional clearance will be achieved when rod is slid into post. This added clearance provides space to insert rod into last post. If necessary: top of post can be slightly turned and rod can be gingerly bent to fit into post.
The brass gallery rail and posts are absolutely beautiful...they exceeded my expectation. They added that little something extra to shelves my husband built for me...like icing on a cake! The end and center posts are hefty yet delicate and just the right size...I would definitely encourage anyone wavering on getting...go for it, they are worth it!
Just what we needed
The brass gallery end rail posts were just what we needed for our new kitchen to hang my grandmother's antique brass spoons. Couldn't find what we needed online so we made them. The end posts, plus the brass rails worked out perfectly. We made two rails for hanging kitchen implements and will likely order more!
The brass gallery rail and posts are beautiful! Dainty and feminine in person and scale. We will definitely purchase them for future projects.
