You r wrong cutting the 3/4 inch,
all stairs need that extra space when you walking up

Deborah Fideldy says:

Good thing I found this video before starting my stairs.  Thank you for a great demonstration. I’m excited also because now I see another power tool I “need.” 🙂

Eric Melanson says:

So I’ve been doing wood for 20 years and now some other guys I know have got into an argument about the proper method on prep. I’ve always cut the nose off the stair, and install just like you. They say that I’m knocking all my stairs out of code. They like to leave the nosing on then cut a strip of wood and attach to the front of the nose. It looks like complete hell to me. Who is right?

wmurphy1979 says:

Totally pointless first vid one clip of u cutting off a nose would do. and btw as a stair builder myself i find your vid to be very risky as some stair builders use rebates in the bottom of the tread and someone could really damage there stairs doing this.

Timothy Roan says:

The mini saw is a Rockwell Compact Circular saw.I found iut at Lowes from $80. The other item is a multi tool, also available at Lowes. Saw them both here and had to haev them as well 🙂

Hey nice video
Hey what is the name of that tool for cutting the nose ?

Mohamed Bhimji says:

Great video – but do I have to cut the nose?

disnikkajay says:

why did you not build out the steps but you shorten the tread depth by cutting them off. sometimes it will not pass inspection if you do so.

Benny Ross says:

I’m remodeling a home that has hardwood flooring going up the stairs and it is directly on the stringers. I was to do laminate as the hardwood is not in good condition. What should i use to make the stairs out of?

luis manuel says:

u don’t have to cut the nose

Ramon C says:

nice tip on how to measure the nose 🙂

Kimberlee Rivera says:

Thank you, that was a big help! I appreciate you and your videos!!

Gazooo29 says:

I’m not fully understanding why Hardwood flooring has those V nose stair’s available. When everyone is cutting the nose, I thought it just went over the nose.
