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.

Looks good! I really like the wood and paint combo for trim work, also. Did you turn the newel?

The dark timbers, the painted timbers and the decorative iron work look really great together.
Nice one.

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.
