« Part 3: Dry fit the "Cattle Gaurd" Part 4 of Stairs for Our New Haus series Part 5: Stairs Starting to Come Together »

So am building this staircase “one step at a time…” ( sorry for that) – Am literally building the stair case as several individual woodworking projects. I’m not sure how the Hall Bros. did it, but I am making 5 separate sets of stairs and railings. Each set encompasses two stairs and the railing. Each is attached as a separate component. So far, lotsa fun, but I don’t think I could do it without Sketchup – I’m just not smart enough. I rebuilt this section once, to get all to fit properly. – cut the step twice but was still too short,. The planning is the most complex. There are many offset mortise and tenons, differing thicknesses and the final finish is going to take some thought… but, all n all – it’s all worked out well ….so far – looking forward to the final!
