When going through the stairs, we encountered the unique scenario of a four-by-four and a six-by-six post nearly side by side, creating a tight workspace. Instead of drilling all the way through the post with a through post fitting, we used a lag receiver swage stop in the four-by-four post, as they are great for stair runs and hard-to-reach places.
On the bridge segment of the project, we had two transition posts. Here, we utilized the transition wood post protector whenever the cable entered or exited at an angle, allowing the cable to make a smooth transition as well as to be easily tightened.
Equally as tricky, on the deck of the main house we encountered a corner too sharp for just one run of cable. Though initially we were tempted to make the corner all one able run, we found it best to break it up into two separate runs to avoid any trouble spots creeping up down the line.
Remembering to include wood post protectors can be difficult when in the middle of a cable railing install, that is why we recommend setting aside the exact number of post protectors you’ll need. This way, you’ll be able to keep track of your post protectors and be less likely to miss one as you finish off your run.
In the end, the cable railing offered a clean, non-obstructive view of the house’s picturesque scenery. We want to give a special thanks to Shane and Christy with Selective Designs for giving us a chance to video this beautiful home Selective Designs.
