All nail Drum!
My first custom....
set of RAILINGS...
been working on these for a few weeks now on the weekend... The house belongs to my brother in-law. They bought it and had the flooring equivalent of a 'paint party'...before I even started I had some work to do to remove the existing nosing around the hole, and re-install it level. Then the posts had to go in; they went in suprisingly well... It's all maple, the design is my own, it's going to get a deep cherry top. I almost finished the second panel today...

That looks very nice. I really like the look of the maple, so nice and light to brighten up the home. Great job!
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.

thanks everyone! The posts are anchored with 'Max-lags' which are essentially a steel plate with 8 holes and a massive lag screw. The screw goes down into the floor into a 3/8 pilot hole, and 8, 3 inch #10 stainless screws go up, into the post. Pretty freaking solid, I had my doubts but wow.

Very nice work Mar!
Are you going to hide visible screw holes with dowels? It's a pain in the *** to do sometimes but it makes things look very nice in the long run.
Keep up the good work and remember... measure twice and cut once!
