I have the most pleasure in wood working by using scrap wood. These stairs were made from used Western Red Cedar flitchs discarded and used as donnage from a slicing operation. Red Cedar is very soft so the carpet was added over the traffic area. The rods are 3/4 and are anchored to the floor joist over head with a piece of angle iron.

There you go again! Love the wainscoting in the background – just like your kitchen wall… Personally, I’d be terrified to go up those stairs the first few times, there’s something about the mental image of no support underneath that freaks me out – lol.

Interesting, I hope the fire department or building inspector never need to visit.

Beautiful! I too was noticing the wainscoting / paneling(??) on the walls. The stairs and the walls make an absolutely beautiful pair.

Great job and a wonderful use for something that was discarded by someone else. I hate to burn my cutoff pieces, but if I don’t they will take over my shop… At least I burn a lot of them in my smoker! Anybody want some ribs?

It looks beautiful.
I do have to agree with Junior, at the very least the spindles look a little to far apart.

Beautiful job ! ..... and as for the fear of the building Inspector ; code only says that the rise and run is within standards and that there is a “graspable” handrail for anything more than 3 steps (3 is free). I’m sure you can make a beautiful handrail to compliment the treads! There is however a standard spacing requirement for spindles; basically so kids can’t get their head stuck in the space.

Wow. Cool and frightening. Mostly cool. I’m sure you did your research so I wouldn’t be afraid to climb ‘em. Just have the tub’o’butter ready if you have any kids or “simple folk” over :) Just kidding, brilliant idea.
