Smile Another newbie

Hello every one my name is ROLe and I'm called the Stairguy. I am in the market to learn new things as it relates to woodworking in general but specifically stair building. It is pretty lonely out there. Not many people specifically derive their living from building stairs so I usually bore the heck out of people when I get into the nuts and bolt of my chosen craft. Hope to bend your ears soon and thanx for letting me be part of this forum.

The paneling and the stair work, yes. The handrail are 3 1/2 " wide the balusters 2 1/2" and the newel posts 5 1/2". You could ride a skateboard down those rails they were so wide. The columns were supplied and installed by the contractor. These suckers were wood and weighed a ton. I know the picture doesn't show it but that stair has a brother that is it's mirror image on the opposing side. Thanks for the reply. Your humble newbie, ROLe.

Your work is top notch. I had a very interesting talk once with James Dean, the guy who built the stairs for Tick Hall. From the Ashes is the DVD story of it. I have the DVD that's how I learned of James Dean the Stairbuilder.

By the time I got off the phone with him I wanted to go to New York and do 2 years under him.

As to the DVD, you can't hardly believe the lengths these people (Dick Cavett the actoir and his wife also some kind of actress) went through to rebuild that house exactly as it was before it burned to the ground, including the sagging cieling! No joke, the contractor had to build the sag into the new house, and the flooring guys had to reproduce the worn look in the pictures they were provided. But that doesn't scratch the surface of what these people researched and planned and contrived in order to get their home back exactly like it was, prior to eventually raising it like a Phoenix . . .from the ashes.
