Stainless Steel Cable and Wood Railing
Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Do you remember back when we built this railing for Momplex Unit B? We absolutely LOVE how it turned out. And we love that not only does it protect the stair opening, but it's so substantial, it's almost like a long console table that you can lean on.
Galvanized 1/8" cable was swaged onto galvanized eyebolts that were used as tensioners. A swaged stop was used at the other end of the run with excess wire cutoff with a grinder. Eleven cables, 3" apart, were run through 1 1/2" square steel posts that I had galvanized. The posts were 3/16" thick at the ends where all the tension was and 1/8" for the intermediate posts. The posts were thru bolted thru the 6x8 beams underneath with 1/2" bolts.
