The present booklet contains 7 selected instruction examples to
practise and consolidate knowledge and skills in the manufacture of straight
mortised wooden stairs with two branches of flights.
The instruction examples have been selected so that the
individual exercises can be practised separately or sucessively, one based on
the previous one.
The hand tools, measuring and testing tools and auxiliary
accessories as well as the previous knowledge required are stated for each
instruction example. The previous knowledge is necessary in addition to
knowledge of the "stairmaking" technique and should be recapitulated at the
beginning. The sequence of operations specified for each example gives the order
of working steps leading to the manufacture of the respective stair components
A working drawing showing the required shapes and dimensions of
the stair components and auxiliary accessories is attached to each example. The
necessary explanations to the working drawing are given prior to the description
of the sequence of operations.
For acquiring and practising the skills to be developed it is
recommended to manufacture the stair components in the workshop in the scale 1:
