    I just finished a stair project It was a challenge, first I built a concrete set of stairs using sleepers to form and steel, Then I cladded with sandtone tiles. I used hardwood auzzie sleepers for the wall up the side and hardwwod post and handrail and sanded it all and varnished with marine grade poly.
    The fall on the stairs and landings was fun given they veer off in a different direction from the existing stairs. It get you scratching your head allowing for the stone also on top, keeping the treads uniform.
    I hope you enjoy, please go to the pictures section or my website to view :gmctruck:
