Stair Restoration

I'm not sure what the builders had in mind when they built this staircase, replacing what was probably a very attractive original.

 

Stripped down to something real. Already an improvement.

 

I found this walnut stair rail on Craig's list. There weren't enough spindles in the set so I had some made. The lighter colored are new.

 
The stair treads and stringer are original (note the new bullnose on the side of the treads) everything else is new.
 
After a lot of Bondo and sanding, the finished product.
 
I applied a custom finish to the banister of shellac flakes, denatured alcohol, and raw umber dye. The flooring is the original (circa 1910-1930's) fir flooring.
