Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
Cut all of your wood to size using your Dremel Saw Max.
Drill pockets holes using Kreg into top stringers and attach to bottom stringers using pocket screws.
Attach the closed riser to the bottom front of the stringers countersinking the side screws.
Attach the back brace to the stingers.
Attach the second closed riser to the stringers, measuring 1" down and 3/8" in from front. While this riser was built using a piece of 1 x 10 trimmed to 1 x 7 to have it sit below the bottom step, an alternative would be to use a 1 x 6 to have it sit flush with the step.
Attach steps. Congratulations! Your steps are officially done! You're now ready to fill your holes with wood putty, sand, prime and paint.
