Hello all I decided to retro fit my stairs...
I made new stair treads from maple.
I fit everything first and I vanished everything the other day..
I put the finished stair down and now I'm not happy with the gap.
I'm not sure what to do with a gap I'm left with between stair and the stringer.
The gap is about the thickness of my finger nail
I'm also curious what I should put on my curved stairs for cove moulding. The molding will wrap around the stringer and underneath the lip. Have a look at pics for reference.
Also, I ripped out my oak balusters and will be installing iron railings. Problem with this is the iron is 1/2" thick compared to 2" oak. Should I put the iron I. The same spot? How do I get the iron balusters level?
How should I fasten the steps and risers?
Thanks for your help
