Stairs off deck to beach. Treads and risers are 1×4 or Tigerwood ripped to 2 1/2” with radius edges added, oiled with Penofin exterior finish. Posts and balusters are clear seater with Cabot weathering stain, Top rails and post caps are Sapele mahogany.
Rails joined by mortise and tenon (scrap mahogany) as shown in last picture. Would not do that again!
Framing was pressure-treated, Only stainless fasteners used, all screw holes clogged only fasteners visible are on the outside 4×4 posts.
Spacing of boards allowed for sand to all thru, but added a foot shower at stair entry also.
