    Default Circular Stairs

    Here are some stairs we just built. The first picture is in our shop. The rest are where we test fit them. Now it is at powdercoat. I will post more pics when done.. Rails will get pickets ilke deck after powdercoat.

    Very Nice Staircase. How did you make the handrail? Is it one piece?

    hand rail is one piece. It is 3/4 sched 40 hand rail. We actually bend it by hand.

    I'd pay to take part in the handrail bending process- cool. Very nice staircase, house and lake too.

    Default Hand Rail

    Very nice job!
    I have a question about the handrail. If this is pipe what causes the diameter variations? The bumps almost make it look like segments that are put together somehow.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I donít totally understand the question, what we do we start with a piece of 3/4'' handrail, and we put it the jaws of a vice(loosely) and start bending it gradually until we have about a 3' radius. By this time we already have our pickets plumb both directions, we start at the top an tack it to the last picket before the landing, then gently bring it down to the next one, tacking as we go. But caution you CAN NOT USE HEAT or the rail will kink. it takes time and patience. I have built about 6 of these and trust me this one looks way better than my first.

    Is this an oversight or a complete disregard of the 1.25" to 2.0" diameter standard for handrail and the 4" opening standard for railings?

    Must not be a building inspector there, but I bet there's a lawyer waiting for a kid to fall through that.

    This is not a commercial application. It is always nice hearing from a know it all.
