« Part 5: Applying the top railing boards. Part 6 of Building a porch. series Part 7: The finished product! »

I ripped 2 X 6’s in half, & ran a 1/2” radius on all of the edges.

I also routed a 1/2” deep groove by 1 1/2” wide, to fit the balusters.

I cut these from a square piece of 2” X 6” at 15 degrees on my bandsaw, with 1/2” radius on the bottom.

Nice work on the railings. And a great reward for a job well done. Keeping the crew well fed is a good way to get the project completed nicely.
