Deck rails - can it be easier?
Building my deck rails and I'm about to go loopy, lol!
I bought the top and bottom rails from Lowe's, they are already "indented" to hold a baluster. I thought this would make things easier, but, I can't figure out a way to build these without taking forever....
I do not have an air gun, so just hammer and nails. I do have a screw gun...
So let's say my rail will have 12 balusters. It seems logical that I must attach all twelve balusters to the bottom of the rail. But trying to lay the top on, with 12 balusters swinging every which way...it's not happening! I have tried laying it flat on the ground, building it sort of standing up, etc.
I would appreciate any suggestions!
Pardon any typos, my IPad has a mind of it's own for spelling corrections!
