My porch railing had a rotten spot in the column, so I decided to repair rather than replace. I chiseled out a chunk and just glued a square piece of 2×4, then used rasps to duplicate the profile.

Awesome repair.Most would throw out the old and buy a whole new post. (Rediculous consumerism). I love walking past some, long since forgotten, repair that I’ve done years ago and reliving the pride of the moment.

Right, it is too easy just to replace. But there is nothing more enjoyable than never leaving the house for supplies and fixing it with materials in the shop.
