The other staircase

Back in 2007, as part of a renovation we had removed an enclosed staircase which was covered in ceramic tile. We opened up one side and rebuilt it using new stringers. We finished it in ash.

Now, almost 10 years later , we're getting around to doing the short one which leads up into the kitchen. I removed the tile and we decided to just recover the old one instead of building new stringers.selected some ash and started making risers and treads.

Very nice. A big improvement over the original.
I noticed the window is down in your classic car. Classic car inside a wood shop?

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Thank you for the kind comments. As for the car, I got as far as putting the cover, still in its bag, on one of the fenders. The car will need a good dusting before I put the cover on. And perhaps more accurately it is woodworking in the garage, as I don't have a dedicated woodshop.

Would be nice though. :)

Looks like a beautiful car. Is it an old Chevrolet?

Coming along. the top tread has to be redone as the drill operator put a hole in the wrong place. While we are at it we'll make it reach the bottom of the door.

I hope that the first picture is not of the finished product. It does not show any railings on one side of the stairs.

You are right, there is no railing on one side. Been like that since 2007.
