    Hollow Chisel Mortiser or Domino Jointer

    I have both and use them differently. For solid furniture joinery, I prefer the mortiser and table saw tenoning jig. I enjoy the build and solid feel of a mortise and tenon joint. I use the Domino more frequently. If I had to give one up, I’d give up the mortiser and make mortises any number of...

    Chris, are you using something like this? (Rubber sander cleaner) i have an open end Supermax and use the cleaner after each day’s use. It refreshes the sandpaper. If you are already doing that, I have nothing to add...

    White cabinet doors.

    Aqua-coat grain filler is an option. It is generally easy to apply a few layers, although scaled to 20 doors may be more onerous than other options mentioned. I’ve used it for smaller projects. I would envision mdf center panel and aqua-coat treatment of frames.

    Stair rail configuration help

    Jim- You are right about the distance between the two rails. I might try your stepped approach. Until I get done installing new rails and returns, it might not be much extra work to wrap around for a continuous rail. I'll have to decide. Charley, I'll use my local lumber yard, Caudell Lumber...

    Stair rail configuration help

    Dave, thanks for the rendering. The elevation change from the mid landing step needs to be accounted for. Either the short cross piece would have to be slanted or there would have to be a short vertical section. Another way to express that is that the (walking path distance)/(rail distance) is...

    Stair rail configuration help

    Regarding code, I’m up to speed as the work will be inspected. For thread reference, IRC 2018 chapter 3 link: Welcome | ICC premiumACCESS scroll to section 311.7 if interested. Your local enforcement and/or code version may vary. I’ll look at those parts again, Charley. I have been mentally...

    Stair rail configuration help

    Thanks, Bob and Joe. With the 180 degree turn around the wall, it seemed like there’d have to be two upturns in close proximity which would be clunky. I could leave a gap, but I personally have trouble with the step on the landing without something to grab. The outside wall has the half wall...

    Stair rail configuration help

    I am looking for advice on how to configure a continuous handrail on the inside of a "U-shaped" stairway. We are coming toward the end of a basement gut and remodel. Elder guests stay downstairs. They and I could use something to grab around the corner. Below are pics of the present state. The...
