How to attach oak railing between two walls
This is a simple, secure attachment. Do this at both walls.
Route (or chisel) a groove in the ends and the bottoms (at the ends) of the railing to fit a simple "L" bracket you can get at your hardware store.
Fasten the "L" brackets to the walls with good, long screws.
Set the railing down on top of the brackets, and screw up from the bottom.
If you want to hide the bottom of the angle, simply cut the bottom groove a little deeper, and after the bracket is screwed into the bottom of the railing, just glue on a thin rectangular inlay insert of oak and sand it smooth.
