Simply Stairs offers guidance on the design and construction of timber staircases

Simply Stairs provides a detailed step-by-step guide through all aspects of the design and construction of a range of timber staircases from start to finish.

The book both describes and demonstrates every technique, skill and project, and features a ‘Rise & Going Calculator’ chart for aiding stair calculations.

The author’s philosophy of methodical working, checking and double-checking, avoiding pitfalls and mistakes, and reaping the rewards of producing strong, well-designed staircases is recounted in a relaxed, informal writing style to maintain the reader’s interest. 

A sneak peak

Extract from Foreword by Kevin Jones, Technical Manager at Richard Burbidge:

“Through each chapter of Simply Stairs you can feel safe in the knowledge that you are being led and taught by an expert… this book will become the bible on all things stairs for every student and expert.”

Simply Stairs is aimed at trades people, professionals and students of carpentry and joinery, in addition to those interested in DIY and self-build projects.
