Step 1 - Cut Materials for a 6' Section
Measure the exact distance between each set of Post Sleeves and cut the 2x4 Top Spindle Support, the 2x4 Bottom Spindle Support and the 2x6 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 2x4 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 2x2 Spindles on the 3/5" side of the 2x4s. Screw all Spindles to the 2x4 Top and Bottom Rails.
Step 3 - Attach the Support Blocks
Center and attach the two (2) Support Blocks under the 2x4 Bottom Spindle Support as shown on the diagram above.
Step 4 - Attach 2x6 Top Rail
Make sure you center the Top Rail to the Top Spindle Support board.
Step 5 - Attach Post Sleeve and Skirt
Slide each Post Sleeve over the 4x4 wood post. Slide the Post Skirt over the Post Sleeve.
Step 6 - Attach Railing Assembly to Posts
Measure the exact distance between posts. Trim rail ends to length if needed to fit in between the posts. Attach the rail assembly to the posts.
Step 7 - Attach Post Cap
Complete your railing section with a Standard or Decorative Post Cap on top of each Post Sleeve.
