Replacing "cage" Around Stairwell

Recommended Posts

We are looking to replace the L shaped cage that surrounds our interior staircase at our cabin. There is currently a flimsy wrought iron cage in place at the time. Our primary concern is to build something up to code so our newborn does not get his head stuck. It would be a bonus if it looked decent as well. This only serves as a gaurd rail of sorts to keep someone from falling down the stair well. There are no 45 degree angles. I thought it would fairly simple to get done.

Does anyone know a good place of business that sells stair parts or pre fabricated sections that I could install? I'm somewhat handy, but I would like to avoid piecing it all together, drilling the holes in the railing, etc.

I edited, since I did not realize you just "wanted to snap it all together", but......

I'm doing the same thing right now.

Menards / Home Depot both carry the stair parts. Home Depot in pine and oak, Menards in 3 o 4 different wood types.

If you ever get over to White Bear Lake, there's a place called Windows, Mouldings and Doors. I went there to check them out, but they don't really stock anything, it's all order stuff, comes in - in 3-4 days.

All of the places you have to sand / stain / varnish yourself.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
