Hello. First of all, I realize I can do a search to find answers and I have done that. I have found MANY different answers to many different scenarios; any advice you could give me here would be greatly appreciated. I obtained some beautiful white oak from my grandparents' farmland to use as new stair treads. I already had a woodshop check out the lumber and do all the planing and jointing, and they said it would be great for treads. I have sanded and stained the wood and it looks great. I am now ready to attach it. I ultimately desire to attach the stairs without any nail or screw holes showing and that includes plugs. I DO have access to the underside of my stairs. What would be the best method to attach the treads to the existing stair wood? What is a good adhesive to use? I feel very comfortable completing everything on my own including the risers. My only real concern is attaching the treads. I have included pictures of the stairs after having removed the previous linoleum and some plywood. The black is previous adhesive and I assume this should be removed before attaching the treads? If there are any other suggestions, advice, or tips you can give me I would be very grateful. Thank you for your time and advice!!!
