Im about to tackle installing the above on my presently open plan stairs. I have 2 newel bases, top and bottom 60 cm high currently on the straight run of stairs.
Im looking for advice on the best way to start, I have bought 2 square half newels with spigots and square balustrades to make the job a little easier.
Is it better to drill the 50 mm holes and set and fix the newels plumb first and work around these?
I have bought the easier handrail fixing kits to also make life a little easier.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
