the best way of attaching wood to metal
Hello and thank you in advance for your ideas and thoughts.
I have a spiral metal staircase. I have created a custom railing and need to attach the last portion. This is where I am stumped. It is the span between a 4x4 wooden post and the center metal pole. A railing is important here so you don't take that big one step to the bottom.
My railing is basically a 2x8 top and 2x8 bottom with some ornate spindles in between. I am having trouble trying to figure out how to attach a 2x8 vertical, to the hollow metal pole securely. The pole is about 4 inches in diameter.
