Very nice! Gives me shivers to think of all the skew work involved. I’m new to turning and the skew still scares me.LOL Some day I hope to be able to turn something that nice.

All I can say is it looks like it was very professionally done.I really like this stairway. we have a large stairway in our house built in the 1890’s and there is alot of decorative cast iron incorporated into it so I can apreciate your workmanship very much lovely piece again. Alistair
