Reinstating stair handrail and spindles in Southampton

The previous owner of this property had removed the handrail and spindles, the new owner wanted them put back.

Because the newel post had been completely removed I had to machine one from 100mmx100mm stock to fit into the stud wall cavity  with an angled mortice to cover the stair string, then a wider than usual base rail needed to be machined to cover the stud wall. The handrail was a stock item from a supplier, the spindles were machined on site with a stopped chamfer.
