re worked railing, lowered so it wouldn’t be in line of sight when sitting down, used old spindles

they all had to cut a little off of both ends so to save time and to give accuracy I used two saws

they are screwed down to the bench, a piece of plywood clamped to the saws with a screw in it provides an indexing pin

I had some thin scraps of mahogany that I nailed the spindles too, the top and bottom rails were precut on the job and taken back to the shop to use a pattern for the strips to get the correct length and angles on the ends, just need some warm weather so it can be caulked and painted
