I was actually putting a set in the runners while I was gluing the spray rails on. I did one spray rail at a time and then the runners. the ratchet straps were real tight.

One more quick question for you. Are those brackets for the splash rail all the same length? That looks like a real good idea for keeping them in place while the epoxy sets.

Yes. They are all the same size. The dim is like 10” down from the top. I don’t think the note was specific on 10” down to the top of the rail, middle of the rail or bottom of the rail so I just kinda hit mid point.

From a previous question, I used the dimensions specified in the plans for the size of the rails and runners. I cut from clear (relatively) dimensional lumber.

I rounded them off with a router and screwed them down. Then I filled the screw holes with wood flour and glassed over them.
I believe I used 12' pieces as thats all Lowes had that was decent. I mitered the joints no worries...

Thanks Gary!

I was wondering about routing the them.
I'm taking it you mitered the side splash rail correct? I think 12' would be long enough for the runners but was thinking it would be too short for the splash rails.

I actually mitered both. I don't remember why I mitered the runners. :roll:

I routered the top edge of the side rails and both edges of the runners.
