Boat builder built a staircase

Gary's 2 X 4 stair rails reminded me of this place.

The stairs don't comply with the building code because of the open treads, and I didn't measure the gap between the uprights, but it looks greater than 4". It's an art piece, so I wasn't going to be critical.

I didn't notice the detail in the newel or the wood balusters, the first time I looked. Sweet!

John, did you happen to measure the distance between them. The treads look like they're about 2" thick. Depending on the rise, as long as you can't pass a six inch sphere between them, they would conform.

BTW. Where can one purchase a 4 3/8" and a 6" sphere?

Hey, you need a way to the second floor at your place. You should give it a go.

Tom, I just ordered the stacked stone tile for the outside of the bar around the kitchen and am still three walnut doors away from finishing that project. I can't afford stairs.[;)]
