The homeowner decided after the stairs were complete to add the wood handrail to the top of the iron. The landing rail ended up being an 18 inch radius which was too tight for me to be able to laminate the rail. So we glued up 6/4 maple and I got some knives cut for my shaper and ran my own. I plowed out most of the bottom with a forstner bit and a drill press the rest i built jigs and used a router
