Staircase module
 


This is the staircase module which incorporates the corridor to nowhere. I made these books last year when I first had the idea for this build and couldn't resist having a little play.

I have no words Jo...it is a masterpiece: the wall paper (I know and love that pattern with monkeys), the turning handrail, the engraved decoration of the steps, the bookcases, each detail is an outstanding component by itself...congratulations, I cannot wait for your nesxt step of this fantastic project

Ditto to all of the above! Especially like the curved part of the bannister with four bottom spindles on the rounded tread. So realistic. Did you curve the bannister?

Thanks Chris and Janet. My son bought me the staircase for my birthday last year from an EBay seller in China. It was unfinished and pretty rough but I managed to make it look ok after a bit of work.

Did you do the carving on the sides of the stairs, Jo?

It's just perfect.

Would love, love, love to get my hands on one of those staircases. Do you know if they are still available?

The staircase is marvelous. I have that paper and love it; I'm saving it for another build. This is really beautiful! Wonderful job!

I didn't do the carving on the stairs Selkie. I think they still have them but I must warn you the unfinished ones are pretty rough. This one needed needed some TLC.

Here's the link

Thanks Debora, what do you plan for the monkey wallpaper or is it just "I gotta have this - I'll use it one day " which is what I'm like.

I love the wallpaper! I didn't see the monkeys until I read the comments and had to have another look...love it even more now :)

Thanks Keli, I've loved this particular wallpaper for a long time but never built anything where it would be appropriate so I'm reveling in the Victorian/Edwardian theme.
