i have recentley moved into a house without a handrail so am looking to fit one. i have some limited carpentry skills but was wondering if anyone could explain how to fit a newel post to what is left of the old newel post safely. a dowel joint sounds easier than a tennon and i have seen newel posts that appear to already have a dowell or pin in the bottom?
