    Ellipitcal Stairs, (pics).

    Here are some pics of my latest staircase. Sorry for not cleaning the lens. I was a difficult staircase to design, but everyone is pleased. The rails should be fun also, but I have a few weeks before I get to them.

    Wow!

    Did you take any in progress pics - would love to see the underlying structure.

    How did you shape the ellipses? Bandsaw? Router and templates??

    Can't wait to see the rails.

    Hope there's a nice check at the end of this!!

    I was thinking the other day we hadn't seen much of you lately. I'm glad to see you've been busy. Like the others, I'll be anxiously awaiting pics of the finished product. Looks awesome so far.

    Me Too!

    I want to see that room done! That's beautiful work Richard.
    I hope the new owners give that staircase the respect a masterpiece deserves.
