No offence taken...Nice work!
How come they went half and half pvc/wood? It sort of makes no sense to me because you are still dealing with staining the wood yearly and there's quite a bit of it.
Not criticizing, just wondering the rationale.
Nice work, but what is to prevent the 1X flat down rails from warping & cupping like a bad dog?
I dunno, looks like 2x6 cedar cap rail to me - w/ a max. 5' span...I believe he's talking about the 1x handrail.
