Hi everyone, here is another project Mike has set up, this time using 3” white oak from basement to second floor with landings.

Great project, Mike!

Thanks for adding these for me, these stairs were manufactured from left over logs that the customer had for his project. The logs came from an old barn that was dismantled and he reassembled into a nice little cabin on the river near Calabogie Ontario, Canada. The logs are well over 150 years old. We milled them with our sawmill and then turned them into this beautiful set of live edge stairs for him. Thanks for the help and i look forward to working with you on our next project.

Hi everyone,

I love Mike’s work that is not only limited to stairs.

Everyone should look at his website to understand the way he works :

Great job Mike!

Have a great Christmas.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Mike, images need to be quite small for the web. If you click upload attachments, you’ll see the max file size and dimensions the forum accepts.

A quick way to do it is to use an online service like: http://www.picresize.com/

Upload the image, then in this case pick a custom size of 600 x 800 pixels (or 800 x 600 say if landscape), and it should easily be small enough to upload without a problem.

Any problems, let me know.

Edit: here they are. Nice job, Mike!

yes the steps are thicker than the stringers. I am using old reclaimed barn beams that I am making the stairs out of and the longer pieces for the stringers i had to mill thinner than the rest because of some rot and large cracks. I had to go to the center of the beams to get solid wood. As for the other suggestions that works for me. Thanks

Hi Mike,

I’ve tweaked you stair a bit.

Added a landing step, made the stringer straight and wider to accommodate the winders, etc.

Your steps are very thick at 2 1/2, thicker than your stringers, are you sure this is correct?

The risers are also resting on the steps, you might consider passing them behind the steps.

If the this is OK with you, I can send the working documents.

All the best,

Ness

hi Ness Thanks for that  I think I have everything ready for you this is the first one I’ve done lots to learn yet. good with the wood not so much with the computer.  I have the post set at 110″ and at this time there is no railing the customer is going to do his own welded art thing. I like the second option you presented with the 1″ spacing into the steps best. if you need anything else let me know.

Hi Mike,

Here are a couple of variations on your stair with a 9″x9″ post.

I’m supposing that the big post is sitting on the floor and extending up above the first floor.

I’m guessing that you want to assemble the upper balustrade into the big post.

The strings are recessed into the post, but it would be simpler to use false tenons or big dowels and bolts.

See these videos:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..jig-build/

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..y-jig-use/

The model mike01v01 positions the strings in the middle of the post:

This reduces some what the width of the steps around the turning.

You might find it better to off set the strings as in the version mike01v02

You can control the height of the post with the “top height from ground parameter”:

You can tweak this project to your needs, post the final draft and I’ll process it to sent you back the working documents.

All the best,

Ness
