5.0 out of 5 stars Such a useful book
I'm a professional, apprentice served carpenter. During those years I worked with stair construction for about twelve months. I purchased this book to get around a problem I was'nt sure about. .. What a treat. The book is loaded with new ideas. Although written by American crafters, don't be fooled into thinking its of no use to us Brits. If you only ever purchase one...

3.0 out of 5 stars very useful
There dont seem to be many books on staircase building by UK authors. This one is very useful, but the US style of stairmaking is a bit different to the UK.
More of a book to dip into for ideas & a few tips, rather than a step-by-step guide.
Well written with lots of diagrams & pictures & good value for money.

This review is from: Building Stairs (For Pros, by Pros) (Paperback)
I was really pleased with this book. Had been a little concerned that it would concentrate on traditional American-style staircases, but it actually included some really interesting contemporary styles, with very clear illustrations and text on how to go about building them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stairs made easy, 4 Jun 2011
This review is from: Building Stairs (For Pros, by Pros) (Paperback)
This is an American book of articles from a magazine, but it has nearly all you need to build a selection of stairs, in particular cut stringers(easier for the average DIY)

This review is from: Building Stairs (For Pros, by Pros) (Paperback)
An interesting book with plenty of ideas, if not a bit complicated for beginners. Although an American book, still had plenty of information, which is basically the same wherever. Would like to have seen the installation of ready made staircase!

Relevant only to the American market this book has no place here. A complete waste of money,it does not contain the fundamentals of stair building in the UK.
