I'm working on a deck with a lot of level changes. Using 4x4 posts for the railing is undesirable because it'll look rather clunky.
I am wondering if there are any examples someone can point me to where a different, thinner post size is used. I can't seem to find any (possibly because it isn't possible to do it without it being too flimsy). Would a possible alternative be to use multiple, thinner posts? I doubt it as the real problem is people pushing on the railing... Hopefully this question is specific enough to warrant an answer.
