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.
Additional Style Options
- Distressed Detailing
- Hand Scraped Textures
- Paint Grade Risers
Note, wood products may have varying amounts of staves due to the varying thicknesses of lumber that comes in each bunk and the width of the product.
