Ok, the story behind this is back in highschool shop class I was done my scale house project. Made a second one for my teacher to use as a demo for the other students. And I still was done before everyone else. So I used the scraps from the other students to make some spiral stairs. Obviously there are some mistakes on it. And the reason I made it “exposed” is because I was limited on left over wood.

1st: I didn’t use a ruler.
2nd: The blocking in the floor…. I dont remember why I put so many of them :D

I think it’s poplar, and it’s all held together with hot glue. Took maybe 1 1/2 weeks to make, 1hour a day. just a time killer…. That won me a prize :D

Thanks for looking
