    @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.

    Knee wall detail wrapped up

    Radiused landing detail

    More curves!

    After paint and stain

    Heres the last one I did. A restoration to try to match the existing bit that was left.

    Excuse the bluriness

    More tricky notches

    Tight joints!

    Outstanding work. I have framed many different sets of stairs. I rarely get to do any trim work on them though.

    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.

    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.

    Quality work! I especially like the close ups of the tight joints! In the “paint grade age” it seems like the level of work has gone down. Nice work!
