Here are a just a few of the people who have used our StairFile service...

"I would like to thank the Wood Designer team for having let me freely use StairDesigner, a really great piece of professional software, and their excellent StairFile service that allowed me to build this stair project."

A great example of how to combine modern laminating and traditional hand railing techniques with modern high tech CNC to build a beautiful traditional stair. We provided the team at Holt Cabinets with design and manufacturing advice throughout the project.

"Thanks to your StairFile service I have been able to put together this stair with steel strings and oak steps. Thanks for a great service."

"Thanks for letting me share my fantastic experience building this stair. And hopefully I can help any aspiring stair builder to do the same."
