I wasn't clear how a V was incorporated, so the following may be redundant.

What types of design details should prolong or shorten the lifespan of porch railings? For example, are shouldered tenons, extending even a 1/4" in all directions from a mortise, better or worse? What about closed mortises? Round or square uprights (ballusters?)? Bottom rails that slope away from the uprights?
