This is not glued together yet. It would be smarter to glue them together and then draw on it... I need to wait for my new jigsaw and clamps now, but I will cut out the next pieces. Do you have the middle piece drawn or not yet? After handling the pine I realised that it is going to be way to soft. My misses wants to put carpet on and I think I will have to agree with her even though it wasn't something we had in mind. Nevertheless it is going to be one strong staircase when i will manage to tackle it..
