how much overage to calculate for stairs?


i'm doing a bunch of stairs with bullnose fronts and poplar risers. some are regular dimension stairs, and some are very odd angles.

do i use the standard 10% overage for them? i'm thinking it may be more.

thanks!

15% will for sure get you there based on what you are saying.
If you give detailed info on the dimentions I would be happy to confirm a size if you like.
