A while back I was hired by a couple to design and help build this spiral stair case. It turned out great. I only have one picture of it to share that was taken during the process of building it. They loved it and it turned out well. It was kept simple because no one had much money. But she cooked well and they were a great couple. The curved wood was cut into thin strips bundled up and thrown into the Kalamazoo River for a week to soften it up. Many strips were cut and several did not survive the bending. But we planned for that and it went well. Never needed more clamps than I did on this job.

Is that your first spiral staircase? It looks pretty nice?

I have done 2 spiral stair cases. They are so much different from one another.

Wow. I think you are being modest with your post. Even as an amateur woodworker I know that’s a very difficult project to build.

Well done.

Quite the project. Nice Job ! I’ll bet your proud of your work. I’m always glad when one like that is finished, I’m a custom furniture builder but it always leads into more than furniture.
