Stylish Stairs Railing Wood

Stairs railing wood is not only a decorative part of a staircase, but also serves a security purpose. Most municipal building codes require that a handrail be in place for interior stairs. The codes also set the height between 34 and 38 inches. A wooden stair railing has to be set 1 1/2 inches from the wall and be no thicker than 2 5/8 inches.

Locate the studs on the wall where you intend to hang the railing of the wooden ladder. Slide a search engine on the wood. Once you locate a stud, usually the closest one is 16 inches away. Mark the posts with a light mark so you can find them again. And then measure the height of the handrail from the front edge of the lowest step. Mark the location. Measure and mark the same height from the front edge of the highest step. Use a chalk line to mark the height of the railing on the wall.

Keep a handrail bracket over the stud that corresponds to the lowest mark on the chalk line. Drill pilot holes for the support with the support as a guide. And then find the stud on the top of the ladder that corresponds to the highest score on the chalk line.
