Some stairs i built. The steps are solid oak. The skirt and all painted woodwork is maple. I built this years ago and it was my first set of stairs. Since then i have completed many more. I don’t think its too bad for a first attempt.

Beautiful stairs. I just met a guy, husbend of one of my wife’s friend, who has been doing stairs for 15+ years. Talking with him for a while I realize that stairs are more complicated than they look. Great job.

I have turned a couple of barley twists before there’s a lot of work in them .You’re not really able to do this using the traditional lathe methods, so I admire your dads workmanship. It takes a fair bit of working out (actually mine turned out good too )so he’s (your dad’s ) my brother and so are you Jonny your both a credit to the profession LOL well done again young man.
