    Default How to cut notch in the bottom of newel post over stringer

    Hi guys
    Is there a correct way/procedure and tools to cut the angled notch in the middle at the bottom of newel post so it straddles over stringer?

    Circular saw, Hand saw and chisel. Do about 6 or 7 runs either side , Then get the handsaw in between your sawcuts to cut out the remaining bits the circular couldnt get to. Break the slivers away and chisel out the rest. Doesnt take long at all.
