FLOATING STAIR TREADS
White Oak Stairs
These stairs were made in our woodworking factory at Chevallum on the Sunshine Coast Queensland for a local builder. The brief was to create boxes out of 20mm American White Oak with all edges mitred. For this we used a lock mitre cutter on our spindle moulder. All corners on the boxes were mitred and then glued with Techniglue epoxy adhesive. The boxes were then slid over the steel work protruding from the wall. The end result was a set of stair treads that appeared to be floating off the wall. The builder chose glass balustrading which further enhanced the look.
