Mahogany cap rail, chair rail, and bookcase top. Wainscoting and bookcase poplar styles and rails with birch plywood. Sorry I couldn’t get better pictures of the spiral staircase and wainscoting. The area is very tight. These stairs were added to access a child’s bedroom. They are not primary egress.

Most of my furniture and interior design are actually made of teak woods, and almost 70% of the entire home is made of it, and all of them came from one source, this one, just a big concern, can I use teak wood for that kind of stairs?

There is no reason why you couldn’t use teak. I use mahogany to match the existing main stair case rails. The floor and treads are white oak. I know teak is widely used on boat decks but for your treads and flooring you may want to consider something else.

Have your say...
