Sorry guys, I haven’t been posting my projects for a while, even though I have been profiting from this website to see yours. So I am now comiting to posting more projects as I build them.
This specific one was just finished today in school after class hours. I am in my third year of carpentry classes in college. This stair case is a project for my joinery class, but the teacher thought it would be funny to test me and my partner a bit more then the others. We ended up having one open side, morticed the stringer into the newels, half dovetailed the balusters to the treads, made mitre returns… And, on top of that we steam bent the bottom stringer.
All pine, Me and my partner milled up everything from rough stock. It wasn’t so tough for me since I worked in stair building in Ottawa all summer. But I ended up learning a few tricks for high quality stairs, like dadoing in the treads to the risers and the risers to the treads, and how to make a template for the housed stringer.
The railling is 24” high, and the whole unit is 18” from outside to outside of stringer… 100% pine… I have a big load of pictures since we had to write a How-to article as an assignment.
anyways, enjoy :)
