    Before moving back to charlotte i was still working in boone for a builder that employed me part time through college. This was one of the last project i worked on. It is plate steel will square stock welded to it to support the treads. All the wood was douglas fir, it was a fun project.

    Very very cool. We recently framed a staircase that involved attaching stringers to steel tubing. Kind of a floating staircase deal.

    Looks nice, but how well would the Doug fir hold up on stairs? We don’t use it in the Midwest…but isn’t it really soft?

    Great job did you do the layout on the walls for the turn . The mortised slot is the best part . Did you run bolt up throw the step .

    Always willing to learn .

    Cool project. @tylerwalker32, how did the stair treads fasten to metal support. Do you have a picture of the finished staircase?

    Yes it is a very soft wood. From what i remember they will be using and epoxy to help durability.

    We had the steel fabricator drill holes in the tubing and we ran 5″ simpson screws from the bottom to attach the treads.

    I have been wanting to do a floating stair case for a while now. Unfortunately nobody has wanted them yet. The Douglas fur is nice wood I like working with it but it’s usually for exterior stuff.

    Looks good. Stairs can be a whole art unto themselves.

    Nice staircase, that is a whole lot of material to hog out for the tubes. It looks great however. Floating steps like that look very neat.

    @tylerwalker32 wow, very nice, do they have any flex near the outside seeing how it’s only supported by the welded tube,
    The look is very neat.

    That is a really cool set of stairs . I love the design .

    I’m sure having them drill the holes saved a lot time for you on install . Did you get any splinting when drilling the screws up .

    Always willing to learn .

    I don’t think I’d trust the welding guy well enough to put something like this in my house! One single 2″ square tube doesn’t seem like it could possibly be fail safe.
