This design dates from the Victorian style period.
We used African Mahogany for the treads,balusters,risers
rail and newels.
Typical are the exposed treads with the bull nose profile ending with a return into the inner stringer.
Where the risers meet the treads the joint is covered with a
scotia profile. Same is done ate the inner stringer.
Railing in this design is 60x90 mm bull nosed with a round-
over of 20 mm.
Balusters are round 38 mm and paced on each step.
Newels are 128x128 mm square at the blocks.
As seen on the photo the first bull nose step is placed under
a angle in order to create more space near the adjoining door.
The soffit is panelled with hardboard as this needs to be

Bracings and the central column are in this photo done in steel. However wood (s.a.pine) is of course also possible.
This type and actually all types of staircases are done in D.I.Y.

The making of the shuttering(form work) for a spiral staircase.
What we normally do is just to provide the client with the principle form work, reinforcing, propping the soffit ,steelwork and concrete work is done by the main building contractor. In this manner its more cost effective.
