    Loving it, Jay. That is a heck of a nice slab. If you get a chance sometime, throw up a pic or two of your hand tools (like the draw knife). Thats like doing it old skool.

    Not at all really. It exceeds the required clearances.

    Many ways to do it....But if I had an unfinnish stairs I would do it that way and have extra board just in case. Wax on wax off really dont that hard to do. Oh and it looks good. If you want it real shinny Wax off in a year and put whatever you want on it.

    Also you can half Klein dry it. Then do the same-thing.
