This project was within a major remodel done by a contractor who asked Cusparian to do the railing system. The existing stair was to be removed and replaced with a new stair.This picture shows the same view after with a shorter stair requiring minimum distance from the front wall for traffic. The contractor did all the painting and finishing.At the top the architect changed the configuration allowing for a curved rail looking out over the foyer.This required a couple of challenging joints at the top with a curved rail meeting an up easing.When the contractor ordered the stair, the bottom tread was not long or deep enough to accommodate the thickness or the radius of the 560.00 volute. Cusparian had to make the volute fit the tread as best as they could. They cut out a one and a quarter inch slice and had to rebuild the volute reinforcing the front section from underneath with a threaded rod countersunk from each side. It was sanded and carved to be as close to round and appropriate at the most obvious section of the railing.This last pictures shows the curved rail over the curved landing tread with that rail intersection mentioned before.
