Step 1 - Cut Materials for a 6' Section
Measure the exact distance between each set of posts and cut the 2×4 Top Spindle Support, the 2×4 Bottom Spindle Support and the 2×6 Top Rail accordingly. Use the thirteen (13) 2x2s as the Railing Spindles and space them evenly between the post sleeves. Cut the remaining 2x2s into two 3.5″ Support Blocks.
Step 2 - Assemble Spindles
Screw the middle Spindle to the center point of the 2×4 Top and Bottom Rails. Attach the remaining Spindles, working your way out from the center point. Leave a maximum 3.5″ gap between each Spindle. Center the 2×2 Spindles on the 3/5″ side of the 2x4s. Screw all Spindles to the 2×4 Top and Bottom Rails.
Step 4 - Attach 2 x 6 top rail
Make sure you center the Top Rail to the Top Spindle Support board.
Step 5 - Attach railing assembly to posts
Measure the exact distance between posts and confirm maximum distance between posts is six (6) feet or less. Trim rail ends to length if needed to fit in between the posts. Attach the rail assembly to the posts.
