Product Description

In true craftsman style, the 8072 Craftsman Stair Treads are functional and sturdy, with simple lines. The clean design of these treads allow the natural beauty of the high-quality wood to shine through.

Enjoy the 8072 Craftsman Stair Treads with other craftsman stair components, including the StairSupplies™ Craftsman Series Box Newels.

Key Features

  • Craftsman Edging
  • Stain-grade
  • Multiple Sizing Options

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.

Returned Edges

Any side of the 8072 Craftsman Stair Treads that will not touch a wall is fitted with craftsman-style trim. Returned Edges cover end grain, while also adding decorative flair. There are three configurations of returned edges available to cover the exposed edges of 8072 Craftsman Stair Treads: Left, Right, and Double. NOTE: If both sides of the stair treads fit against a wall, you do not need returned edges.

To determine if a Left or Right Returned edge is required, stand at the bottom of the stairway and look up. If the right side is exposed, then you need a Right Returned Edge. If the left side is exposed, then you need a Left Returned Edge.

Double Return stair treads are needed when both edges of the tread are exposed. This style of tread requires a special measurement called the “throat cut”, which you will need to provide when you place your order. To find the throat cut of your Double Return tread, measure the length between the inside of the Left and Right Returned Edges.

With the exception of Double Returns, all Left, Right, and No Return Treads are sent to you with up to an extra 1” of material on the end with no return. This additional allowance may be trimmed on-site to match the exact curve of your unique wall, ensuring a snug fit.

Clear Finish & Stain Information

StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For Wood Stair Treads 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 Wood Stair Treads.

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.

Product Q&A

On average, how many pieces are glued to make each tread?

Stair Supplies

Hi Caleb,
It all depends on the lumber we get in for your order. We obviously cut around knots and defects in the lumber, so sometimes it can be made in as few as 3 pieces, and other times it can be as many as 6 pieces.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Which landing treads and risers go with the 8072 stair treads?

4 years 9 months ago

Thanks for the question William.

You can use the 8092 landing tread ( to match the stair tread. A riser is typically just plain wood, there’s not a particular style to it.

Thank you for the question, Phil.

We do not keep any of our treads as stock items. They are all custom-made for each individual project because of the unique specifications required by every stairway.

I’m wondering if I can get some touch up stain (like a pint or quart) along with my order. I’d also like a quart of the finish you use so I can have that match too, to touch up and seal things well.

Thanks for the question Hal.

I believe we can do that with most of our stain options. Call one of our specialists at (866) 226 6536 to confirm and to place an order.
