Stair systems are the ultimate statement of architectural design, elegance, and craftsmanship. As with any system, a compilation of parts, such as newels, balusters, and handrails, make a stair system whole. Bayer Built Woodworks offers a variety of styles and designs in each component to help personalize your stairway.


  • Post-to-Post (PTP) Stair Railing System - Most common and basic system. With this system the handrail is mounted in between newel posts.
  • Over-the-Post (OTP) Stair Railing System - A system in which the handrail runs over the post and is continuous. This system requires fittings at newel posts to create a continuous handrail.
