What is the proper way to tie this chair rail into the trim on the stairs?

I'd stop the chair about a 1/2" at the top from the stair trim and cut a return on the chair. just a square cut on the chair should suffice, no angles. if you are not matching anywhere else in the house with the chair you could add a back board behind the chair and integrate that with the stair trim better and still cut the return on the chair...

So it drives me crazy when people don't post updates of their projects after asking for help. So here is an update of my project at this point.

This is not going to be pleasant and I'm sure you have invested a fair amount of time in your project so far, but I strongly recommend that you get a couple of books on design before doing any more.

No need to be insulting. If you've got tips and pointers then offer them.

Some folks really like the look and, from the limited pictures here, it seems he's doing a fine job of it. That YOU might not like the look, well, 'De gustibus non est disputandum'.

Not trying to be insulting, just helpful. If one is going to put in the time to install trim in the long run you will be happier if the design is appropriate rather than finding out later and then looking at it everyday.
