Outdoor Steps and Handrail by btyreman
Made for my parents. I used redwood pine and double tenon housing dado joints that are wedged in place. The handrail uses draw bore mortise and tenon joinery and is not glued. The finish is a marine spar oil based high gloss varnish so it should be pretty weather proof, coach screws were used to adjust the level and raise it from the concrete floor.

What I find most interesting is that those of differing skill levels seem to enjoy watching, learning, and building with the techniques you teach. I never feel stupid when I watch your video’s just informed.
