It took a week in the workshop then as it was my first installation too I took too long to install and spent a week installing.

For a similar type staircase I did recently with double kites and winders at the top and single kites and winders at the bottom it took 4days to make and two days to install. I will post pics of that staircase another day. I am now on my 6th staircase all with kites and winders but all in pine and mdf, although I have just priced up an oak staircase, so fingers crossed....

Looks brilliant and puts my effort to shame. I can appreciate just how much work has gone into that after building my first one.

Thanks for the compliments! I do enjoy making staircases! Not the most frequent of work but good when they come about!

Rest assured Dave that the hole was pelleted and so couldn't be seen when I had finished! Originally the staircase was going to have glass balustrade, the timber balustrade was fitted after installation of the original staircase. I think the price of glass put them off! Normally I notch it in!
