Guidelines for Layout.

Cabinet Railing Posts
Placement of Brass Railing Posts is subjective.
Post should be spaced equally across front.
Typical spacing between posts, across front or back, is approximately 8” – 12” apart.
If cabinet rail will be straight without sides, use end posts on each end
If cabinet rail will have sides, use corner posts as a junction between front or back and sides.
Please note if using sides: side-spacing often differs from front-spacing
Railing post-base diameter is 1-1/4”. These posts should be inset a minimum of 3/4” from edge.
Brass Rod is available in 2 lengths: 36” and 72”
If rod is not long enough, it can be joined to another rod, within a post.
If needed, rod can be cut shorter with a hacksaw
Measure length of each straight run. If your design is a straight rail, with no sides, it is one run. However if it has more than once side, such as 3 sided it would then have 3 runs.
As rod is 36” or 72”, it often needs to be cut shorter or joined with a longer section to complete a run.
To calculate total amount needed: add together total number of rods, for each run. Consider that you may have leftover rod from one run to satisfy another run.
