Wood porch railing – If you recently created a porch of his house or has just finished remodeling an existing one, the next step is to add railings. Porch railings give an appearance finish and provide an aesthetic visual limit. The rails can be left in natural wood color, either to match or contrast the color of the porch. The task requires only some hand tools and power a weekend or two.
Measure the distance between each post of the porch to know how much wood porch railing you will need. Write down the measurements and buy enough wood 2 by 2 inches to make the upper and lower parts of the wooden railing next to the 1 by 2 inch slats. Wear safety glasses and measure and cut wood 2 by 2 inches to form the top and bottom of the rail. Cut enough wood 2 by 2 inches to fill each space between porch posts

Measure and cut wood porch railing 1 by 2 inch slats. You can space the strips about 6 inches apart. Lay two cut 2 by 2 inch pieces of wood between each post of the porch to make sure that everyone fits. Attach the strips to the bottom of the rail with a nail gun, and then attach the top rail to the slats to complete section panels.
