    I did my first radius staircase this year, actually it was two of them on
    one job. Looks pretty good. I'll have to show pics as soon as possible, just not very good with computers. Anyway, the block was easy to place I
    found out, because your only seeing the side. I had a heck of a time with
    the caps though. Turned out good, but it just seemed so time consuming!!!
    Any tricks to lessen my man hrs. and pain in my back from lifting and
    cutting and placing over and over, over? Dont get me wrong it was worth
    all the sweat and hard work, my client is very pleased. Just very frustrating
    at times. Look forward to your thoughts.

    Just experience. they are very time consuming if you aren't fast with the saw.

    One tip measure the distance between the two stones and then take half the amount off each stone.

    Please post pics I would love to see what this looks like. It sounds like it would be really hard to do.
