Thank you! alot more work to do! here are some photos of randrail we rigged together..cedar top and doug fir under handrail..now gotta do loft and waiting to get bigger router (need to go down 3 inches on posts for landing newel posts). I live in small town and need to hit the city to get bigger router! Will post more soon! Yes we have some routing on the newel posts to fit over the last tread and stringers..so far the thing hasn't fallen over!
