Very nice.

Looks complicated. A bit of “scratch the head”

Very nicely done! How long did it take? Was it finished in place? Great work.

I am wondering about the time to completion also. The work looks first rate.

great job!! I built about 15 sets of octagon stairs 25 years ago, but they didn’t have handrails!! It looks like a lot of fun!!

Stairbuilding is a trade on it’s own. Very nice job and quality craftsmanship. Anyone interested in staircases should look at this link: http://www.theoutlaws.com/unexplained2.htm Tks for sharing.

YES THIS WAS A BIT OF A HEAD SCRATCHER BUT I LIKE TO CHALLENGE MYSELF
THE LAMINATING WAS DONE ON SITE AND THE RAIL WAS LEFT IN PLACE FOR SHAPING BY HAND TOOLS
I HAVE DONE MANY A CIRCULAR STAIRS IN THE SHOP WITH ALL TYPES OF CONFIGURATIONS
FROM STRAIGH TURNING TO CURVE ( DOG LEG ) TO Y SHAPES SO THIS IN THE END WAS NOT THAT HARD
FROM WHAT I RECALL THIS TOOK ABOUT A WEEK OF LONG DAYS !

THANKS FOR YOUR KINDNESS

Looks like you’ve done some nice work here but as you might agree, full octagon stair layouts always look interesting on paper but often appear as “crippled versions of circle stairs” on completion. The real surprise is that they’re much harder to produce, since neither the handrail or the curb trim details come together without significant hassle.

I’m wondering how the stair itself is supported since an inside segmented stringer seems inadequate? Classic octagon stairs from the Baroque/Renaissance period were often constructed around a floor-to-ceiling colonnade with the straight flights of stairs being supported by the corner columns.

Your workmanship is beyond question.
