Oak Staircase and Entrance

A short while back I started this staircase. I finally finished it. Thankfully the owner was in no hurry as she was working on other parts of the house too. I had done all the floors previously. All rails and balusters were purchased but I made my own treads, risers, and all molding. I’m particularly proud of my tread returns as it was my first staircase where I made many of the parts.
The curved cut on the tread returns were done with a router and template that made a sweep instead of a 45 degree angle at the corner. a plywood strip acts as a sort of loose tenon joint to give them strength. I have to admit that the owner is meticulous at scraping, sanding, and finishing the wood. She made me look a lot better than I am as a result.
