I have successfully produced my first set of stairs - they may only be four
rises high, but I feel a sense of achievement. They lead up to the verandah
of my kids' cubby-house.
To give them a really "finished-off" appearance, I would like to do
something nice with the tops of the newell posts. I have seen other posts
with the tops "routered" I think, but I can't imagine how I would set up and
control my 2HP router to get a neat finish. I have tried chamfering the
edges with a planer, but got fairly poor results and a lot of chipping-out.
Can anyone suggest a reliable method for somebody relatively new to this
