New Stairs for the New Year

My husband can make just about anything and has become quite the craftsman at making wooden stairs.  He's made them for our last two houses, this house and a friend's house.  Earlier this year, he made them for the staircase going up to the ManCave.  Over Christmas, he made these for the stairs going down to the basement. 
Previously we had carpet on the stairs, but with the kids living at home as well as their friends going up and down on beige carpet, it really took a beating.  When we had the carpet cleaner here this summer, he told us either the stairs would be beautiful or they'd be ruined by what he was doing to them.  Well, they were ruined, which was fine because I've got the husband who can fix that.  :)
I've learned that any project done with power tools in the house will make a mess.  Putting this plastic up helped keep the mess contained.
This set of stairs had some unique angles that required lots of his skill!  Also, he was able to match the stairs perfectly to the walnut in the rest of the house!

We've finally smartened up and kicked the kids out of the extra garage so now he has a spot to leave his woodworking during the work weeks. 

He used the same pattern for this landing as the other landings he's made recently.  I love it!
It is so nice to have another project done! 
Thanks for your visit!
