Basement staircase

saxmaan1July 20, 2008

If a regular baluster staircase is not possible, could I eliminate the 2X4 vertical studs (for attaching the wall rail), and use one of the pedestal supports you see on regular staircases? Or will this be too wobly and require a regular rail for strength?

Here is a link that might be useful: first post?
