There are two basic sizes that fit most wood deck railing or fence posts: 4 x 4 and 6 x 6. Measure your railing post to see which size you need. Your post won't measure exactly 4 x 4 or 6 x 6 – that's the "nominal" size. Your posts or post cap opening will most likely measure 3.5 inches square or 5.5 inches square respectively.

Add top platform. Using 45-degree angles in the corners, cut & add the top platform to the bottom portion. We used nails angled in on the inside edge of the wood pieces into the porch posts.
