« Part 1: 45 degree OTP Winder Stairs balustrade Part 2 of Stairs series no next part

A recent Over-The-Post balustrade install with a starter step, end caps and a volute.

In part 1 I installed my skirt boards, end caps and started my rail.

Now to install the starter newel to the starter step.

Newels and rail installed.

Throw in some balusters….

And the final product (less carpet).

A couple bonus pictures of the continuous rail in the basement._

I like it, I’ve never attempted winding stairs like that. I’m sure it took a few days work to get that done.

Looks great. Had you thought of possibly using a bending rail to curve around on the transition landings.
From the side view it looks like it would have been possible. That would have eliminated the two newels and easings in the center of the balustrade and had a smooth fluid look without the “steps”. Just a thought, I can appreciate the work you put into this. I had a railing setup to do similiar to this from the basement to a third story “mother-in-law” apartment. That makes too many steps to hustle up and down.

Gary, I almost wish it would have been that easy, but no, it had to have the goosenecks.
