Re: Staircase upgrade

One question I have is how do you fix a continuous handrail to the spindles ? I'm also thinking about removing the newels and mocking up the two key turns to get the look and feel right for the handrail. Just a tad concerned about not having a bannister for some time. EDIT: I think I may be able to...

Re: Plywood kitchen

lt would not be my choice of carcase construction but it gives you a starting point.

Judging by the very expensive looking house and appliances l would not dream of making the carcase out
of nothing more than shuttering plywood

Re: How would you make this step stool?

Pete, I have made a few of these, mostly 2 step, the 3 stepper is quite dangerous as the top step is immediately above the foot below it which can make it unstable, have a look at the proportion of a normal set of kitchen steps.

As far as construction methods l agree with Mark
