Building a octagon wooden deck railing?


I am trying to build a wooden railing around an opening in my deck that was a 24 diameter pool(Above ground pool) I built the deck 180 degrees around the pool to give my family access from the deck into the pool. The pool is gone now so I want to build a railing around the opening. I am using six 6 foot sections with 7 posts to close the opening. My problem is finding a fixture to attach these sections of railings to he posts. The shape of the railing sections are octagonal connected at 30 degrees. I would appreciate any help. I can get Thank you,

You should not need a "fixture" other than nails or screws to attach the railing sections to the post.

Building a octagon wooden deck railing?


What do you mean a picture ? a Drawing? It is a simply rectangular deck one side connected to my house and the opposite end goes half way around a 24' diameter pool. the deck is at the same height as the pool for easy access. The pool is gone now so I want to enclose the opening with a octagon deck railing. Simulating a half circle. How do I draw a picture of this?

If you're referring to "A picture is worth......" then that statement is in my signature below the line and appears below all of my post.

In your OP you said "fixture" which I thought you were referring to some sort of hardware such as a hanger or something which you do not need.
