Carpenter Brighton

This Grand Oak staircase was fitted in a Property in Romford, Essex. I normally work around Brighton and Hove but travel further for jobs that really interest me. This job was a real test of staircase setting out and planning. Not only did the treads become wider as you walked down they also curved outward. This meant making specific templates for each tread as well as curving solid oak risers all the way up the first flight.

The spindles and newel posts were turned to an original design and the carved newel caps were done by a specialist carver. They also did the acorn design on the staircase string.

A detail which I was not happy with was the position the builders had put the doorway on the first floor landing. They formed the doorway a foot off centre... They have moved it now!

Just a reminder you can visit the Blue Sky Brighton Carpenters website to view our full portfolio of carpentry, joinery and cabinet making services. Just quickly fill in the easy to use contact form and we will soon be in contact to arrange a free no obligation quote.

This woodworking book contains a great deal of details about wood working. The book also shows several designs and explanations on the materials useful for different woodworking processes and the directions on completing different processes properly. In other words, I`m happy using this book, specially in the procedure of understading about wood working.?
