Master the basics, February 3, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
I just received this book and read it straight through. The pictures are good, the writing is clear and it's advice, as far as I am able to tell, is sound.

This book is true to its tittle. It won't help you to create beautiful spiral staircases but it will guide you on how to build safe, functioning staircases. It's well written and even some thought is given to the aesthetic of where the stairs should be in the house.

I also ordered the video companion which I haven't received yet but if it's as good as the book then I'll be more than happy.

Just one tip, should this be your first time building stairs I would suggest studying the topic as much as possible but also to have someone with experience give you a hand since the quality of stairs is vital to the safety of you and your family.

As I said, this book primarily covers the basics but in Carpentry mastering the basics is everything.

Stair Building, April 5, 2000
Reviewer: andrew wilkinson from Califonia
I was looking for a book that would help me both deign and eventually build a set of stairs for our new home...the book is very helpful, I really liked the photographs that showed the real situation, and the line drawings were accurate. The pictures are in black and white only, but that is not really a problem as they are clear. Several styles are described from very simple to more elaborate rebated/housed designs.

If you have some idea of what you are doing then this will definately clarfiy a few things for you
