These homeowners hired us to replace the original staircase and handrail. They wanted to be able to stain their existing staircase but found it was made of only a contractors grade type material. Also it was starting to pull apart. It was then decided to remove everything and install a new staircase made from oak and white pine. The hand rail and box newel posts are made of oak as well. As you can see things really came together very nicely. Photos are property of Creative Ideas Carpentry By Brian Tenney.
