This course is designed to meet the needs of indentured apprentices with the State of California who are interested in the carpentry industry. The course covers basic stair construction before presenting advanced skills needed to perform circular and “u-shaped” stair framing tasks. Students interpret floor plans and drawing elevations for job planning, and to lay out and construct advanced stair designs. Students will adapt stair calculations to determine the number of stairs, landing height, stair tread, and riser dimensions. In addition to measuring skills, mathematical principles, and stair and handrail fabrication and assembly, the course covers installation techniques required for circular and u-shaped stair configurations.
