@Skillman asked me to do a thread with some photos of my stair and railing work, so I figured hey why not.
Heres some photos of the first big one I did.
Bending rail for the radiused landing. Pretty stressful glue up. That rail costs 55 bucks a foot!
Here it is fresh out of the forms.
Tricky newel post notch the post the goes in the winder section.
Progress of rail and baluster install
So many fittings! The LJ Smith components are pretty sweet though. The top pops off so you dont have to fiddle around underneath.

Outstanding work. I have framed many different sets of stairs. I rarely get to do any trim work on them though.March 5, 2015 at 6:22 pm #firstname.lastname@example.orgModeratorOwatonna, MN - Minnesota
Stairs are really an art. It takes a lifetime to learn all of the tricks. I have a guy I sub mine to, he loves the complicated ones. They tend to excite him.March 5, 2015 at 6:27 pm #288836

The first one I posted is the stair I’ve ever built. It was like a crash course in stair building. I loved every minute of it. I’m trying to reach out to builders to get into more stair work.March 5, 2015 at 6:28 pm #288839jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
