How To Cut Hardwood For Round Stair Nosing!!


I am installing raw 3" red oak on an upstairs. There is a round bull nosing that the hardwood will butt up againest. The nosing has not been installed yet but is on the job. My question is how do you get the curve of the hardwood installed to match that of the round nosing.

Scribe and cut your but ends with a saber saw, or band saw or scroll saw.

Re: How To Cut Hardwood For Round Stair Nosing!!


The butt ends will not be butting up to the nosing. The long end of the board will be butting up to the nosing. Makes it a little more difficult. I was thinking about running the hardwood up to the edge of the plywood, then sitting the nosing ontop of the hardwood where it would be installed and outline the curved edge of the nosing. Next nail a piece of 1 By to the hardwood following the curved line I made and use a router with a top mount bearing to guide along the 1 by. Does anyone see why this wouldnt work or a alternative way.

When ever there are stairs involved, I always try my best to start the upper floor installation off the stairnosing.

With that said, dry lay and scribe, what you need cut. Dry lay again before actually fastening it down, to make sure it meets your standards. Then glue and nail it.
