: Oak for spiral staircase
: pat 30 January, 2006, 15:19
I have been asked to make oak steps for a wrought iron spiral staircase, the steps are 13inchs at their widest and 26 inches long. Is there a danger of this warpping if the step is made from a single plank, would I be better off using preformed solid oak sheeting (made from a series of 2x1 glued togeher).

Any assistance/views appreciated.

Laminated oak boards from 2x1 , are probably more stable. But they will not look as effective as treads
made from a full width , or even 2 for a full width tread. Quarter sawn oak boards would be the most stable
choice of solid timber , and would also look beautiful when finished. But its your choice .
