Default Railing build for my buddy's mom (stroke)

The day after thanksgiving last year my buddy's mom had a major stroke, leaving her right side almost completely paralyzed and she couldn't speak for quite a while. After months of rehab now she's doing a lot better, moving, talking, almost completely 100% mentally and cleared to return home this weekend (time-crunch, eek).

They have 2 short series of steps upto their front door, which only the 2nd series has hand rails, so I will be making some railings to make the first set of steps safer+doable for her. Will be hitting everything with stain, a clear poly coating to finish and using spread-anchors for mounting (concrete).

Gave that bish a roundover....bishes love roundovers...



That stain, tho...(other main handrail not rounded over and stained yet, ran out of steam). Will most likely be finishing the other main handrail tomorrow, staining it and hitting the rest of the pieces with a 2nd application of stain (all-the-while trying to get work in on an enclosure build). They didn't want to drop a lot of money into these (only $41 into everything, including stain and clearcoat which probably wont be all used) due to, most-likely insane medical costs theyre seeing from the rehab etc, but I still want them to look as good as possible since they'll be outside of their home.



More when it happens...

Got the rest of the pieces cut, rounded over, and stained. the 4 vertical supports and 1st main handrail that were done yesterday got a 2nd application of stain today (that's why the right handrail is darker).

I'll be laying on a 2nd coat of stain onto the 2 smaller handrail pieces and the 2nd main handrail before work in an hour or so and then after work I'll be getting over to my buddy's for test fit of everything and install after work today.

So I go over to my buddy's with everything ready to go...I get upto his house and there are guys there putting in new flooring (they tore-up the carpet and installing hardwood to prevent her from tripping-up on the carpet I think) and then I see a tube-style handrail installed...? And I can't get ahold of my buddy because he's out on his motorcycle...great, we'll see where this goes...
