In the Workshop: Oak Staircase

Just a little peek at a project I'm working hard on at the moment in the workshop — a totally bespoke oak staircase. It's going to be a really beautiful feature when it's completed and it's been a unique and motivating challenge so far.

For making these spindles, I manually turn the first one to check the client likes the finished example. I then make a template and I work with another small Aberdeenshire business — Turning Point in Inverurie — who have a very specialist copy lathe.

I'll add more shots as it begins to take shape — and be sure to follow my Instagram for other snippets of what's on the bench.
