What's that you say ... Jason doesn't know how? He's never used a table saw? He has no working knowledge of terms such as "Tread" or "Riser?" "Stringer?" What the hell is a "Stringer?"
Bahh. That's why God made Google. That carpenter guy on TV did it in 30 minutes. Surely I can too ...
Reality is a 4-letter word in the Rupp household.
These first two pictures below show what the stairs looked like with carpeting and the underlying pine construction. I had already put on the painted risers in the picture on the bottom.
Top Picture: The first tread is in place. Brings a tear to my eye.
Bottom Picture: The first three. Wow, this doesn't suck!! It might actually turn our ok!
It's Done!!! Front view and top view. Still some finishing work to do, but that will come when the stairs to the next level are finished. Too big of a mess left to do the finish work now.
And, of course, I wouldn't even been able to try to do this without the support from my lovely wife and wonderful assistant, Kristin.
