Replaced the temporary pine railing that was starting to rot after 6 years.
We had some rough cut azobe posts left over from our swimming pond construction and I thought it'd be a good idea to use them to replace the temporary stair railing that I made in pine and was starting to rot.
Rough cut and not so very straight azobe post. Cut to length, sanded and bevelled the top.
My original idea was to attach the posts like this but that didn't really work out as the thread was way too large and I couldn't get a wrench in to tighten the nut down.
I opted to simply glue them in place instead. Tec7 to the rescue! My original idea to toe screw the rails into the posts was quickly abandoned and I used these brackets instead. Should last quite a few years. Azobe is tough as nails. Use metal drill bits to predrill and go very slowly. Predrill with a big enough diameter as your screws will snap otherwise. I can break about 4 drills and 5 screws a day.
