Can anyone recommend a good book on this subject. I need to particularly focus on an open tread design.

Thanks

Renners,

This book is pretty old, not sure if it may help or not.

http://www.basiccarpentrytechniques.com/A%20Manual%20Of%20Carpentry%20And%20Joinery/16%20A%20Manual%20Of%20Carpentry%20&%20Joinery%20Stairs.htm

or this: http://www.evenfallstudios.com/woodworks_library/stair-building_and_the_steel_square.pdf

Haven’t actually tried using either one, but I think there is some good info in them.

Hopefully something in either one will help.

I have the book, BASIC STAIRBUILDING by Scott Schuttner, it is a very good book with excellent instructions on lay-out and design. I have used it many times for reference. you might be able to find one on Amazon.

Someone recently gave me the book A Treatise on Stairbuilding and Handrailing by W & A Mowat. I haven’t read it yet but it’s pretty comprehensive. The back of the book has a recommendation from Fine Homebuilding.

Lee Valley reprints old titles and sells lots of new ones on

If you read French,
look here :

you will find “Construction : L’escalier (6 diaporamas)”; click on “L’escalier”
