Staircase on Stringer Capping


Recommended Posts

I am an interior designer working in CA x12 Interiors. I have watched many videos on staircases but cannot find information on a railing that sits on a stringer capping.


I am designing the lower level of a split-level home and also am working on the staircase up to both upper levels. I need a staircase with a 7 baluster railing running into the wall halfway up the stairs to the 2nd floor. The railing needs to sit on a stringer capping rather than having open treads and risers. I can draw the angle with the wall for the railing to sit on and I can draw the railing, but cannot get the railing on the angle.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you Steve Nestor...great video. It worked exactly as the video shows and made it very simple. It is as the video explains a variation on a pony wall.

Then I made a few adjustments to balusters and the top railing and it is minutes!
