Do you cut each piece for the handrail or do you make a pattern and use a router to mass produce? The look is great either way!!!

Thank you Dusty.Belg1960 I made a template for the baluster on a scroll saw and cut them all out on an inverted pin router.It takes me about an hour to make the template and it takes about 3 minutes to cut one out on the pin router. The hand rail and shoe molding was milled on a William & hussy molder. I plowed a 3/4” on the bottom of the hand rail to accept the balusters then nailed on the shoe molding at the bottom.helluvawreck thank you.
