Finding studs for chair rail

finding studs for a chair rail

No... we're not talking about a cute guy or a breeding animal. In the home context, a stud is a beam, usually wooden for a house, that is part of the wall support. Drywall is attached to the studs to make walls. When you are hanging pictures or attaching something to a wall, like a chair rail, it should be attached through the drywall to the stud or you need to use a special anchor on drywall. A stud finder can make finding the studs within the wall easier.

Studs for larger buildings may be made of metal.
