You can’t do without a stairs in any household. It can be ladders with which it is convenient to get something with the mezzanine, or the bailiff stairs for lifting to the roof or convergence in the cellar. If there is a second floor or attic, you can also do without a stairs – and here a stationary staircase (marching or spiral) will already be a reliable option).
Any of the stairs can be made to order with a specialist. But with certain skills, it can be done with your own hands. The main thing is to decide which staircase is needed, for what purposes, from which material it is supposed to make it.
If you have clear ideas about the technological process, it will not be difficult to understand how to make a staircase with your own hands. After all, the principle is practically the same in any case: two whole bearing, to which the strips (bars) for steps are attached to the steps. A simple option is a ladder, which can be rearranged from place to place. Putting a special hook-holder on the upper edge of such a staircase (sometimes with a counterweight), you can get a convenient ladder staircase for the roof.
If the ladder is put on the lower end of reliable stops, and fix the top at the level of the ceiling of the lower floor, we get a stationary, say, marching staircase.
You decided to take a chance and make your own staircase yourself? Then start with a simple. Let’s talk about how to make a wooden staircase with your own hands.
First you should decide on the length of the stairs. Her “dictate” the height of the room and the angle of inclination of the stairs, attached to the wall. For lateral load -bearing elements of the stairs (they are called bowstring), you need to choose a whole, without cracks, a fairly solid chopped board (2 pcs.). For the steps of the bar should also be whole. Choose the width of the bar in such a way that it is convenient to stand on such a step.
In the bowstrows, the location of the steps should be outlined at the same distance from each other, and the grooves or through holes are pulled here. Steps with bowstring in grooves are fastened with carpentry glue, and for reliability, they are also fixed with self -tapping screws.
But before inserting the bar in the grooves, the bowstrows should be fixed in their places below and at the top.
