The mahogany here has been finished with Benjamin Moore's Penetrating Pecan stain and sealed with Sutherland Welles Exterior Polymerized Tung Oil in a medium luster.

I believe they would need a lathe at a minimum.

Thank you so much. So these 6-7 steps we see here are 4 - 10" and then do you know what you tapered it down to? Are the stairs on the left that descend down also 4 - 10 in the first set? Thanks again!

Yes, the stairs descending at this landing are also 4' - 10" wide, but I can't provide more detail than that - these stairs are four stories high and very complex.

Hello,
The walls are Benjamin Moore's Bone White with an Aqua Velvet finish and the wood trim and paneling is Benjamin Moore's Linen White with a Satin Impervo finish.
Hope that helps!

The handrail at the stairs is a sustainably harvested stain grade mahogany with a Penetrating Pecan stain from Benjamin Moore and sealed with a medium luster tung oil.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to How to Update a Traditional Staircase
If you have lighter wood floors and are a bit afraid to go as dark as black on the handrail and newel posts, stain your handrail and just the tops of the new posts a dark chocolate brown. This only really works if the newel post design lends itself to a two-tone treatment.
