So far so good!
Your advice worked really well. I'm happy with the treads.
My next challenge is the railing needs to terminate into the ceiling. I'm attaching some pics to show the situation at the landing, 8 steps up. My railing hand height is 36 inches high, which will drive it into the ceiling, as opposed the wall.
I have found some photos of how this is executed, but there don't seem to be any youtube videos on how this is done.
From the attached pics, it looks like I need to mount some railing to the ceiling. Join the ceiling piece with the long piece of the handrail.
Any advice on the connection between the two pieces of rail or mounting the rail to the ceiling would be appreciated!
