Stairway to Heaven?

Pete and I finally finished the stairway. We needed to complete the trim on the hallway side. We started by taking a piece of trim the we had cut to slip under the stairwell newel post and also was cut on the compound miter saw to fit along the stair stringer as well.

On the other end we cut to to fit around the 4x4 block inside the wall newel.

After this piece was placed we put in the trim along the stairwell wall. We really needed this on the hallway side to help hold up the last floor piece. This was also mitered to fit into the stringer.

Of course the really nice board I had was 2 inches short, so we trimmed it back to the last wall stud and mitered a piece at the back.

Here’s a close up of today’s work. Unlike the floor on the other side of the railing this is already stained and varnished.

Here is a shot of the entire side

Here’s what it looked like a year ago before we started any of our upstairs projects
