Wood Handrail Q?


I think we should go with the stairguy's advice. Something about the name tells me he knows what he is talking about.

Wood Handrail Q?


Stairguy....couldn't it also be easily done with fittings? Obviously it would be a little more cost due to the fittings. And it takes more skill since more work is needed to join the fittings, but it would give a nice curved look. I am sure you have done it a 1000 times, but here is a picture of a wall rail I made for my house that is half of what he would need. Would just need an up-ease to the next railing run.

Wood Handrail Q?


OK, bringing this back from the dead. I'm looking at doing this same thing. I have a half wall that I am going to put a banister up and then have two more stairs that will need a handrail. So you just have your regular rail and then an L type jog, like this Handrail Jog which you then immediately tie into the wall after it makes the turn? My only concern with that was the strength of the banister on the half-wall portion. My length is about 5' before I make the turn. I'm wondering if I should do it the way you have laid out or if I should terminate it at the wall and then hand short section that I mount to the wall, but wouldn't be "continuous".
