To be on the safe side, it is a good idea to install handrails in your house and avoid possible litigation if guests accidentally slip on your stairs.

Repeat the steps at the bottom.
Measure the distance along the wall surface from the blue tape at the top of the stairs to the blue tape at the bottom of the stairs.
This is the length of the hand railing.
Mark the length on the railing after grinding and cut off the excess.
Cut a 45 degree angle at the top and bottom of the hand rail for each of the two returns--
The railing part between each end of the railing and the wall.
Put the bottom edge of the hand rail on the bed of the electric herringbone saw.
Set the saw to a 45 degree angle on the left side of the center or on the right side of the center, depending on the direction the Mitter should cut.

90 degree cutting--
Straight up and down, at the pencil mark.
Dry install returns to check for fit between the end of the railing and the wall.
Place the gum on the surface of the mating oblique cut.
