Made a stair nosing for my daughters house as she could not find one that would match the flooring they bought .

Here is a video link on how I made it.

Hay, Klaus,
Great video and imaginative solution. The flooring people should hire you to make a video to show others how to make stair treads and nosing
Good to see you again,
John

When you think things out you’ll never run out of ideas! A brilliant solution to get the what you needed.
And thanks for the well produced video Klaus.

The mind is a useful tool Jim and this type of challenge is well suited for it.

Yours is doing well also !

Being in the flooring industry for 40 years I must say you did a great job Klaus. Many times we had to makeshift these on the job to finish it. When you say the flooring people are only interested in selling by the box is because most of the time they don’t consider the material safe for stair use. Any vinyl embossed or even the ones with ridges can be slippery. We did it anyway to satisfy the customer. Here’s a tip, use some stair nosing filler when applying the adhesive . This will strengthen the nose and prevent premature wear or damage to the nose.
Next time when a friend calls about what to do like in this case I will send them to your video. Excellent video and well explained. No splinters with this material. LOL.

We have thought of it being slippery but it’s not a problem and my daughter said if it is she would put some no slip tape on it . Klaus

Very clever.
Thanks for posting the video.
