Show off your spacious staircase with an elegant entrance. The 8060 Bowed Starting Step gently transitions from 11 ½” to 14” in depth for a truly traditional and timeless design. Rounded ends offer a natural location for turned newels with volute handrail fittings and wrought iron balusters. With options to customize wood species and finish, we have just what you need to create your picture-perfect stairway.
- Starting Step
- Bowed Front
- Rounded End(s)
Each side of the 8060 Bowed Starting Step that does not attach to a wall requires a decorative Rounded End to accommodate a newel.There are three configurations available: Left, Right, and Double. NOTE: If both sides of the stair treads fit against a wall, you do not need this style of starting step.
To determine if a Left or Right Rounded End is required, stand at the bottom of the stairway and look up. If the right side is exposed, then you need a Right Rounded End. If the left side is exposed, then you need a Left Rounded End.
Double Rounded End starting steps are needed when both sides of the starting step are exposed. This style requires a special measurement called the “throat cut”, which you will need to provide when you place your order. To find the throat cut, measure the length between the inside of the Left and Right Rounded End. Each Rounded End adds 14 ⅜” per side.

Clear Finish & Stain Information
StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For Starting Steps, we offer both clear finishes and stains. Select a clear finish if you want to draw out the natural beauty and colors of the wood. If you prefer deeper, richer tones, our custom-mixed stains are the ideal choice for your Starting Steps.
All tread materials and products that are used underfoot are finished with a Conversion Varnish. Strong and resilient, this varnish is standard in the hardwood flooring industry. Our team of experts apply this specialty product onto each stair tread using a spray applicator for even, flawless coverage to protect your treads against heavy wear and tear.
Wood Grain & Color Variation
At StairSupplies™ we believe that natural wood colors and visual textures add character to our products. With that in mind, we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural variation of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSupplies™ , you acknowledge that you are receiving a uniquely crafted product and there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.
