Built this 5 landing staircase, all material was red oak, skirt boards had to be mitered to the risers, 108 combined risers and treads. Had to cut miters on all treads and return the nosing , 34 newel post, all had to be notched down into the decking and lag bolted to floor joists, also installed 100 balusters that had a 3/4 dowel into each tread. I had to pre cut all the parts so the home owner could stain them before I fasten them. I also had to cut and install all the nosing , Scotia (cove ) moldings and all hand rails

Wow, what a lot of work. This is definitely a good time to jig up.
