Hi Reodor,

If you are asking for how to  shape the handrail, there are an infinite number of possible shapes.

I suggest you go to you a local dealer or visit a web site and choose a profile that suits your style.

Here’s a video on a Festool profile set:

All the best,

Hi

Is looking for steel for my portable router to the handrail.

A little unsure of what exists, to have this on a farm.

Hi Reodor,

Difficult to advise you without some more information.

Do you mean the style of handrails and spindles or are you thinking of completely replacing the railings drawn by StairDesigner ?

Can you send some photos of the room that the stair will be in, styles that you like etc.?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Reodor,

I have checked you stair files and all the parts are coherent.

In the first set of plans, as step to post is set at 0, posts are lacking the step positions and the steps are lacking the penetration into the posts.

This is now corrected in the second set I just sent you.

To help you check and move forwards I attach the PDF print and dxf files of the modified steps and posts.

For your next stair I would suggest that you use our paid StairFile Pro service. This enables us to review you project in detail before processing it.

Hope this is helpful,

All the best,

Ness

Hi

I do not get the steps to be accurate and the columns.
Printed drawings in full scale, but seeing that it is not correct.
There are panels and columns that are not consistent with respect to the drawings.

Due to the low height of the workshop can not I mount the stairs there.
Therefore, I have problems with the two miderste column.

need therefore I advice since this stairs should have been finished by now.

Hi Reodor,

Without printing you’ll have to add dimensions to the DXF files attached below.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Reodor,

I guess that this is your photo.

step-newel-1.JPGImage Enlarger

Having a closer look at your documents I noticed that the step penetration in the newels is set to 0 and therefore the step positions are not marked on the newels and the extra length are not marked on the steps.

Sorry for this it’s probably my mistake but full review of your project is not really included in the StairFile Lite service.

I’ve re-processed the workshop documents with the steps recessed 15mm into the newels .

All the best,

Ness

Hi Reodor,

The DXF files of the posts are named Newel1f1.dxf, Newel2f2.dxf,…..etc.

f number is the face of the newel or post.

They are also of course marked out the general DXF drawings reodor01v02-2d.dxf.

In the workshop document they are marked out on pages 20 to 23.

In general it’s easy to mark them out using only the workshop documents.

All the best,

Ness

Hello I found no markup for the columns in the drawings.

Just for stringers.

Hi Reodor,

Happy to hear your project is moving forwards.

In the dxf plans you should have the drawing of each face of the newel posts (columns).

You can either print out a template and glue it to the face or add dimensions to the notches and mark them from the dimensions.

You can then use the router guide to rout them.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness

My project goes slowly forward, the next question is, how do I enter for notches / grooves for the steps in columns / pillars?

Hello Reodor,

I’m not sure what you mean by rounding the edge. Do you mean the shape of the step or the profile of the nosing?

Can you send me a drawing, sketch or photo?

All the best,

Ness

Hello Reodor,

Your step housings around post will have to be slightly adjusted.

In the attached drawing I’ve drawn in red the adjustment you have to make around the newel post.

 

stepnewel.jpgImage Enlarger

stepnewel02.jpgImage Enlarger

I noticed that the depth of step housing into the post may not have been added to your drawings. Please check this and add if necessary.

Cutting out the housing can be done using the routing jig that you’ll find the router jig explained in this ebook in the Wood Designer ebook library:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..airs/core/

I usually find belt sanders the best tool for sanding a stair.

For a really good finish I, rough sand with 80 grit belt and then sand fine with 120 grit orbital sander.

All the best,

Ness
