3.0 out of 5 stars The key is in the title 23 Jan 2009
As this book is called Basic stair building don't expect too much intricate work . I must disagree with the reviewer who claims the absence of Newel post work. Turn to chapter 5 and you'll find it !

This book does what it claims to do, so therefore the work contained is very basic. However for apprentices who need to get the basics right first I think this would be a good reference. Also the photos are black and white and a little unclear. So maybe a little updating wouldn't go astray, room for improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin 24 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is what it claims to be BASIC information on basic stairs. I would say if you want to build a straight flight of stairs without having too much prior knowledge this book should help you achieve your goal. It's a book that just about anyone can get to grips with from novice DIY or Pro. If you are an advanced woodworker you might want something which covers the subject in greater depth. It's not too complicated to read so won't put you off and is just fine for building your first straight flight.
