Maple Stair Construction
Originally these stairs were carpeted with faux maple reveals on the left. The carpet, tack strip, and spindles were removed.
As can be seen the treads are a different height across the tread so they will need to be leveler.
This side stringer will need to be removed and in most cases can be cut down and reused latter.
Once removed the process of building out the rough stair can begin.
Now that the tread level has been padded we can move onto padding out the rough riser to accommodate a finished riser plate.
The riser plate is cut so that it will over lap the construction tread for a proper finished look when the tread is installed. These treads were glued, screwed and plugged in place.
Once the first riser and tread are installed the process is repeated to the top.
The noses are installed, the treads are sanded and finished and the modified side stringer is reinstalled.
