Q: How do I finish off the stairway where it meets the hardwood? Do I cut a bull nose or some type of custom wood? Also, How do I do curved stairs with hardwood planks? Do I have to taper each piece or just the last few?
A: Honestly, given the scope and complexity of a curved stair case, I would be inclined to call in a stair expert. That is all they do.
Currently we have carpeted stairs with open risers from our lower level to upper level. What is the best way to replace with hardwoods?
I am building a custom staircase, with 12" Aluminum C-channel for stringers. I am looking for solid wood treads, around 2" thick, by roughly 12" wide, and 36" long. Walnut, Oak, or light Cherry are valid wood options. Can you please tell me if you have anything along these lines?
Filling nail holes on staircase
The steps on my staircase are maple. I have already sanded them and I need to fill some holes and polyurethane them. What should I use?
We have a 3000 sq. foot hard wood dance floor (we think it's oak, but not sure). We are looking at a minwax polyurethane water based clear finish. We are doing this job ourselves, sanding, sealing and finishing. We want to know which of their four options is the best…
I have engineered hardwoods in one room of my home. I would like to refinish these myself. Is it possible to sand, restain and put poly on them? If so, how would your recommend I go about sanding them?

Notice: we’d like to network with a “stair guy” in or around Toronto. It would be nice to have a professional to recommend!
