A couple or pics of my first real woodworking project. Installed oak treads and risers in my house. Most of the cuts are basic, but the landing, return tread and newel post are all me. Stained in gunstock and sealed with a floor grade polyurethane.

-- No honey, that's not new, I've had that forever......

As a flooring guy I have to say nice job!

Looks great! You have to love walking up and down those stairs every day knowing that you did that yourself.

Well done. Gunstock is one of my favorite stains.

Thanks for sharing.
