Change Wooden Tree Branch Balusters To Iron

Tree Branch Steel Railing

Tree branch balusters are the wood or metal spindles that run vertically between the rungs and the handrail of a ladder. You can update the appearance of a staircase by replacing old wooden balusters with iron balusters. Start the process by removing the wooden bars.

First, remove the wooden bars. Cut the wooden bars in the middle by means of a saw exchange. Twist and rotate each half of the bars to loosen the pieces to the stair tread and the railing. Remove the baluster sections. Remove the nails that remain on the tread or handrail with a pair of pliers. The cut iron bars by first measure the distance from the top of the baluster hole in the tread at the top of the railing hole. Add 1 1/4 inches to that measure for the total length of the bars. You need this extra length to allow holes in the rung of the ladder and handrail.

Attach the handrail to a saw stand using the clamps in C. Cut the bar through a circular saw with a carbide blade. Then we go to the installation of the iron railing. Place the bar shoe on the bottom of the iron railing. Apply epoxy glue on the holes in the railing and the step of the tread. Insert the upper part of the handrail into the hole in the handrail and slide the lower part into the hole in the step of the tread. Center the iron baluster and footwear with the front of the step to complete the installation. Repeat the process for the remaining bars.
