Modern stair treads – Although most of us give little importance to the place where we take a step up a flight of stairs, well-designed steps to make a safe and attractive trip. Whether you need a replacement or you want the satisfaction of making your own, stair treads can be created in a variety of ways that suit your financial and time budgets.
Some steps are not milled or in the shape of nosing. The part of the modern stair treads that extends over the vertical elevator. This flat leading edge is quite common on deck stairs. For these types of treads, just measure the old ones and cut wood for the same dimensions using a table saw. Instead of measuring twice and cutting once. Consider cutting a bit long on the first pass and adjusting adjustment because you can not correct length after a board is too short.
Although deck stairs are usually constructed with two or three boards for each step of the staircase, stairs inside the house should be of a single board that is a hardwood of your choice. If you are installing modern stair treads, you can use a router with a little ½ inch round to soften the top corner of the overhangs. This rounded edge will reduce the wear of the carpets over time. Ladder rungs without carpet often have bullnose edges on both upper and lower corners of the overhangs. So the board needs to be flipped to repeat the process with the router. Several passes may be necessary to achieve this rounded edge.
