Help/suggestions


I want to remove carpet from my stairs and put down Pergo or something similar. Question/problem I have is the last step (bottom) is rounded at the sides. I see that bull nose for steps is straight, I have yet to see any round bull nose. Am I missing something?:confused:

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks

You may be able to find something if it is a standard radius. I make these myself. For me, it is faster and more economical. You may want to find a local carpenter.

Teetorbilt, I will try just about anything once. Can you give me an idea on how you make these?


Thanks again

I'd follow Flor's plan if I were you and insist on DIYing it.
To do the radius, you will have to make a template, be good with a router and saber saw, knowlegeble in fixtures and wood, have time and be lucky.
The way that I do it involves much of the same except that I have a bandsaw and a shaper. Luck still factors in.
This is why I suggested a local carpenter. The first way might take me 2 hrs., the second, less than 1 hr. Don't forget that the guy has to cover his travel time and overhead. If I were coming in for this job only, no finish, no nuttin, I would charge around $250.00.
