If the house is that old and all the floors are hardwood, I wouldn’t doubt that the Stairs are also Hardwood.

I have No Idea what this means .... “But yes, what I was asking is how to cut the tread flush to the riser. I guess what I was thinking was getting up close to the wall.” ....The “Wall” runs along the Side of the Stairs.

What are you accomplishing by cutting the Tread flush to the Riser? Maybe it’s some sort of an “Overlay” I have yet to see.

Can You or Your Friend not lift up a small portion of the Carpeted Stairs to see if there’s Hardwood under?

Until you do that…Yes! WE/YOU are dealing with assumptions here that could be easily rectified by having a “Peek” under the Stair carpeting.

Let Us know what you find please.
