      Why does the stair railing flatten out on the second step & not the first step?

        There's going to be a raised patio at the bottom of the stairs. Also, I am going to attach a gate at the bottom of the railing. I guess the answer to your question is, that's just the way they wanted it.

        Youngwelder, I really never kept track of time, as this was for a family member. I would estimate, including installation, around 60-80 hrs.

          When I get get the money to get my welder fixed (my shop gave me it with something wrong) I would love to make a railing for my parents house (I still live here since im only 18 and I think a project like that would be something not to bad to start with. I could be wrong do you have any advice about making railings the welder wont be fixed until summer but when it does I want to do a project.

              Advice,
              How are your math skills? There can be quite a bit of figuring on some railings.
              Are you a meticulous person? Picket spacing is very critical on most railings, including squareness. A railing needs to be pleasing to the eye as well as functional.
              You need a place to lay out your pattern, and you need to know your local codes for the type of railing you are making. (interior,deck,commercial, residential, etc.)
              I've found that most stairs are not exactly the same in rise and run, so you need to measure every stair and write down all your measurements. Always figure it out on paper first.
              I never go over six feet without placing a support foot underneath. This keeps the railing from bending. Believe it or not, people will climb on it.

              There are many things I could tell you, if theres anything specific, ask away.
