This is one of my project i am most proud of….. a tradiditonal wood free standing staircase, other than the screws that hold it together.. no metal was used in the construction of this stair. all the stringers are laminate bent, the treads are Domestic cherry and interlock with the risers to create the streanght that the stair needs to be ridged

Very nice. Not only is that technically challenging, but I like the contrast of the darker wood on the white.

You are very good at what you do!
