Oak Stairways...are there kits?


I recently put in a stairway in a house I'm building. It is a 12 step to a 4'x4' landing, does a 90 and goes up five more steps. I used 1 1/2" plywood for the treads (9" no overhang) and (7") risers. The last time I did stairs, I avoided the oak, had a one inch over-hang and had carpet put in. But I want to try oak this time. Drywall is on both sides of the stairs and the railing is attached to the wall. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Sean

This guy explains it better than I can....

It's a little tedious to get a good tight fit since the walls are never perfectly parallel, but IMO, it's well worth the effort.
