Nice set of stairs! Not too fond of the metal work but the wood is beautiful!

Love the massive stair treads and all the wood parts. The metal cobwebs? Not so much.

Really like that massive tread and support beam look. Lot of good looking wood there, and the fact that you
might have made a nickel or two on the project always helps ones appreciation. Thank you for sharing the finished product.

They should have rounded over the leading edge of each stair, I still trip going up and you never know when a kid is gonna trip going down; though I know this isn’t your project per se. Though I do kinda like the metal work.

You picked some really nice massive wood for this project that turned out nice overall.
