Set of circular segmented steps

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

Looking good Roger.

Is that a bit of an echo chamber on the top right of the one pic?
:o :shock: :( :)

Glad to see you are beating this job into submission once more rahter than the other way round! :lol:

Incidentally looking at the latter photos, is your clamp rack a cunning design or did you mislay your spirit level that day?

Which one, Phil ?

Bob...it was held in by friction. Over-enthusiastic slamming of the Up'n'Over door two years ago made it slip. I never use those clamps.

Glueing the nosing assembly for the top step was even trickier due to the tighter radius. Dominos are NOT the right thing to use...DAMHIKT. Bit stupid of me TBH. I'd thought 'more is best' and daily cut domino slots all the way round. But they are cut along radial lines. So as you go round the curve, the axes of the dominos means that you're trying to fit the two pieces together in conflicting directions. Even with wide domino slots in one of the pieces. If my explanation isn't that good I can make a sketch. It all got a bit frantic towards the end with dominos being pulled out, cut off, shavings mixed with glue wiped off, sweat, cussing. Obvious really in hindsight. :oops:

One of those few occasions when a biscuit is the best option.

And so we're on the home straight and time for the floorboards to go on the top step. Originally I'd wanted them to follow on through in a seamless manner and segue into those that would be laid later in the hall. But then I realised that trying to manhandle and accurately sand the curves on the ends of 2.4m lengths of board just simply wasn't going to happen. So a traditional threshold strip was the way to go.

Not that many boards. I wanted to slot the two outer boards under the existing plasterboard to give me the option of not fitting any skirting board in the door opening if I or CD decided that that was the neater option. Enter the ever-brilliant Fein, slide along on top of the floorboard and trim away.

I'd thought that I'd taken a load of WIP photos but clearly didn't. My apologies. And so without further ado.

Ta da !

Finished ! (apart from making good)

Thanks chaps.

I forgot to add that my 'fudge' toolkit for awkward dings in fancy wood was pressed into service. Lots of different shades of wax. A multitude of oil paints and fine brushes. Earth pigments of varying colours and coloured crayons.
