ITEM DESCRIPTION:

  • One stair kit with 15steps each measuring 5/8 riser x 7/8" tread  x 2-7/8" wide.
  • Most 1/12 scale stairs and stair kits have 12 steps.  These are more true to scale with 15 steps.  A room with a 10' ceiling will have stairs with 16 steps.

  • The steps are a total of 10-1/8" high. Maybe cut down for shorter rooms.
  • Made of unfinished basswood.
  • Each step is pre-cut to a 2-7/8" width.  You glue them together.
  • This item is also available in 2 - 24" lengths from which you could the steps to your desired length.  It is the same price.
  • See instructions below.
  • Currently we do not have a hand rail or newel post to match this item.  Balusters (spindles) #1 we do have.

 

Instructions for Making Dollhouse Wooden Stairs

 

Tools and materials needed:

  1. Staircase stock
  2. Saw (miter box)
  3. Wood glue
  4. Wax paper
  5. Ruler
  6. Wet cloth to wipe up excess glue.

 

 

Procedure:

1.      Measure the vertical height from floor to floor.  Each step is a little over 13/16” (.83”) high. Divide the total height by 13/16” or .83 and you will have the number of steps needed. 

If math is not your strong point, use;

·        12 steps for an 8-1/2” ceiling height

·        14 steps for a 9-1/4” ceiling height.

·        15 steps for a 10-1/8” ceiling height.

 .

3.      Sand the riser and tread of each step.

4.      Clamp a stop block to your work surface and lay out a sheet of wax paper.

5.      If you plan to use balusters and a hand rail this is the time to drill the holes in each step. (But don't glue the balusters in place yet.)

6.   Add a bead of glue to each surface and press each piece together flat on its back. Glue on top of  wax paper to keep glue off your work surface. Butt the pieces up to a stop block to help hold them in place.

7.   After the glue is set, sand the edges and back. Be careful not to drop or bend the stairs. If it breaks, reglue it.

8.      Set the stairs in place and mark where to cut the top step in order to glue it to the upper floor.

9.  Cut the top step, sand the stairs, install the newel post, handrail and balusters if you wish.

10.  Finish and glue the staircase in place.
