Stair upgrade

15 tools

My home was built in late 80's. still had original carpet. Pulled up carpet and put in HW floors and wanted the entrance to pop. So I did this....first impressions. I figured, hey...I was pretty good at geometry..I can use a saw...Considering the state of craftsmanship when I started, I feel like I did well.
