Wood Stair Treads
Wood stair treads are offered in a standard 1-1/32″ finished thickness after surfacing and sanding. Extra thick hardwood stair treads for open rise staircases are available in any thickness. The most popular over sized wood tread sizes are 1-3/4″ and 2″ thick. We have produced treads as thick as 4″. Any stair tread thicker than 1-3/4″ will require face glue lamination(s) to meet the desired finished dimension.
Bending handrails for curved staircases can be bent to a maximum radius of 48 inches. Any radius handrail tighter than a 4 foot radius can be made custom to your specifications. If your stair project requires a very tight railing bend, we will need to be provided with an accurate cardboard or plywood template in order to manufacture the section to properly fit your staircase. Please note that wood bending handrails only bend left and right, they do not bend up and down. In order to achieve up or down transitions, you will need to purchase handrail fittings (such as up easings and over easings) that match the appropriate handrail or bending handrail profile.
Knuckle series iron balusters are 1/2″ square smooth face square bar. Many stair installations will incorporate the scroll iron series with the knuckle series. The knuckle style is also available in the larger BULK series.
Box Newel Posts
Box newel posts are manufactured using 3/4″ thick solid hardwood for all four sides. These posts are constructed with lock miter joints at the corners. The flat panel and raised panel versions are made using true stile & rail construction, not just a routed out pocket. Our posts are a piece of furniture.
See below for different size options.
All our box newel posts are proudly made in the USA.
