Twisted deck railing posts

We're building a deck ourselves (slowly) and now that we're ready to do the railings, the posts (4x4s) have twisted slightly from the deck up. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting them back to square?

Re: Twisted deck railing posts

now their twisted from drying you wont be able to get them back to square, you'll have to replace them if you want them square. the only way to keep them fairly square is to have the handrail in place fairly soon after setting the posts, the rail will lock the post into postion
