Spiral staircase DIY Project. The manshed needed an internal staircase to save me having to go outside to access the upstairs. I didnt want a straight stair and always wanted a spiral staircase because they look so cool. Prices second hand vary from £150 to thousands so thats out the question. My skills with timber doesnt stretch far enough to be making the entire thing out of timber so this was the simplest and cheapest solution.
Norm from the end house was taking the acros to the skip so i got those for nothing. You can find old rusty acro jacks here and there if you look and ask around.
The angle iron was another skip find and just needed cutting.
The timber came from the same old elusive hillbilly about 15 years ago when I had a shop. It was originally the counter and when the shop shut I took it away. Cost here was £10 per slab with each slab measuring 6 feet by 2 wide and approx 2inch thick. A mixture of oak and douglas fir I reckon. I used about 3 slabs in total.
Approximately £10 on 3meters of 12mm threaded bar, washers and nuts. I didnt cover the threaded bar part in the video that holds each tread to the next. Never mind its not rocket appliances.
Theres minimal if nearly non existant plans, sizes were guessed mostly, i dont really do maths so angles and circumferences can suck my balls, i just go by the size of my feet, a ruler and some string.
Tools used in this project, not all of them are necessary, they just can make things go quicker and give neater results.
