Stairs with winders

Doing some more finish stairs, this one has two landings with winders. Had to correct some of the framing errors before starting. It will look like a stairway I did recently that is a mirror image.

Thats great looking work Rmarsh

Back to working on the stairway, now that all the kitchen and bath cabinetry has been installed.
Electricians didn't like it when I told them they couldn't use the stairs while I was working on them.
It's a difficult enough job without constant traffic of subcontractors going up and down all day. It takes a lot of focus and concentration, distractions can lead to costly mistakes

Really nice work. I'm assuming you biscuit and glue the handrail joins? What do you use for adhesive? Do you also put a screw in the joint somewhere?

Looks great to me....I like how you dropped your Newell post down below your finish stringers...exactly how I would have done it...and getting those gooseneck easings to go over the post requires great accuracy. Nice

Live2fish...the rail and fittings are joined with a rail bolt. Its hidden and very strong and glued with carpenter glue. With oak its a good idea to "prime" or force glue into the end grain which is very porous then apply more glur

Another one done .... onto the next. Gonna be a very busy year for us.
Six more house foundations going in soon, now that the weather has improved.

That last pic is what happens when you get a gust over 35 mph.
