installing a railing, two newel posts, 28 balusters, and a bottom piece on each tread, and a "wrap around" bit for the risers. (return tread?)
On top of carpet! then don't want me to cut away the carpet for this, so its going to go on top. Was wondering though, the bottom piece (not sure of the name) its a sort of "wrap around" bit of tread, it covers the edge of the actual tread which is flush with the exposed wall? ie: there's a hall way at the bottom, so no wall other than some gyproc covering the risers. (wall on the right going up)
anyway can't decide to pin the bottom false treads with four 15 gauge pins, or use a couple of 2 1/2" screws, then bondo over the screw holes. The HO is having this painted a solid color, and the material is hemlock.
