Here is a step-by-step breakdown of the building and installation of a curved hardwood staircase.
Although each individual project varies, this will give you an inside look at the careful planning and attention to details you will find with Woodwerks.
Step 1: Forming the Skirt Board
After taking measurements and calculating the rise and slope of the staircase, the first step was to form the skirt boards. The trickiest aspect of this step is ensuring the mock walls are an exact replica of the home's.
Pictured above is the machining of the skirt board, and pictured right is the forming of the closed skirt board along the replica wall built at the Woodwërks shop.
Step 2: Installing the Tread and Risers
Step 3: Transporting the Finished Staircase
The stairs were carefully loaded onto a trailer by a team of four men for the 60-mile journey to its destination.
