Curved wood handrail for stairs - How do you shape a curved handrail for staircases? We are building a new home and have a staircase that curves 90 degrees at the lower portion. I am wanting my grandfather to make the handrail but unsure of what he would need to do so.

You'll have to speak with a woodworker or furniture maker.

The footprint of the circle is about 12 feet round, the stair itself is 3 feet wide.

Try looking at statuary too. Pic is a bit hard to tell. If you need help finding this stone, please e mail me

I am curious. How is the load bearing structure of the staircase is made? Is it made out of concrete? Is it possible to make these kind of on the air staircases made out of wooden structure? Appriciate if you can provide some insight to this. Thanks in advance

There is undoubtedly some structural steel in there.

Stairs were made by Simmons (800-940-1057), they are located in San Jose. The posts will be stainless steel, hand rails will be Alder like the stringers and the railing body will be glass.
