This second part of our series on how to build stairs covers what you need to know about the construction of outdoor stairs and railings. This video covers a lot of the details I mentioned in the description from part one, specifically the idea that you need to construct all of your steps to be the same height.

Don’t be easily intimidated by this however, just make sure you use your patience and precision to do a careful job and you’ll get a great result. One important note is to make is that the more stairs you are making, the more important it is to measure exactly right because an incorrect measurement will produce greater variation when there is a higher number of stairs. Also remember to follow that handy “measure twice, cut once” rule and tune in for part three of the series!
