Everything is finished with 2 coats of sealer and 3 coats of semi-gloss poly. I “should” have the treads, cattle guard and handrail portion up next week – ….sanding Walnut….sucks! (thanks for your help Cronk). Here is what a pile of stairs looks like….

I hope that nothing is getting all scratched in that pile.

Looking great.

I wouldn’t expect any less of a staircase project from you. It’s magnificent. Was the first half-rail down from the cattle guard so that it ended on a full rail at the bottom? With all your other furniture in the new house/haus, you should give tours and sell tickets. If I ever build my bungalow, I’m definitely going to have to learn SU. Thanks for the constant inspiration to get back into the shop.
