Thanks, I believe the ladies have done a great job considering what hey had to work with, and, being their first time building stairs , the wife did a supper job on the risers ,but then she had a awesome coach lol ,, patting myself on the back !! this is all ,their, work and they made me proud , as to the finish I like the idea of a carpet runner but experience has taught me they can be a trip hazard as well , so still not sure what they will do . I want them to add some decorative walnut bling along the sides of the risers but not sure if they are on board yet. I tell them the bling is what makes the job , they seem to like the plain look, as far as the hickory risers it was planned ,we were gong to make hickory treads but the oak was what we had , I was surprised how well they contrast together ,also was odd we had just enough oak for the job , the hickory grain stands out even more in real life then in the pictures .it is very color full .
