The handrail

The Shed - - Stairs project -

The handrail is at­tached to a ver­ti­cal post, the newel post, at the bot­tom of the stairs and to the deck handrail post at the top with screws. The height of the handrail is 870mm above the front of the treads. It was made from re­cy­cled Amer­i­can Ore­gon pur­chased from a de­mo­li­tion yard (2m at $10 per metre), cut down the mid­dle with the ta­ble saw, planed with a hand plane, sanded, and coated with tim­ber preser­va­tive.
