We were purpoused to make those pine stairs modern but it showed to be too much of work. I suggested that we can make new ones almost same price only changing style for saddle stairs…. althought we have old ones to copy steps I spend really many hours for making the new ones. Customers changed all floors to merbau and wanted that steps should look like floor so we made steps from mahogany only staining surface first black and then grinding it clean it´s seems to be possible to have pretty same look like merbau..

Excellent craftmanship. I really like the winding effect even though encased in square walls. The color match on the wood looks great. Nice work.

Stairs always impress me, and those with this sort of curve doubly so. Very nice work.
