Thanks Henry. My treads are 5/4 milled to 1". I had
the front bullnosed. All I'll have to do is rip and
cross cut them to size, and rout the open side. I'll
stick with my 36 tooth blade (it's carbide).

What's the standard overhang for the tread to the
riser? Same on the open side, tread to skirt?

I have some blade cleaner, it's called OxiSolv blade &
bit cleaner, or Sprayway saw cleaner (pitch & gum
remover) these work pretty good. I get them from
Grizzly Industrial. I also use Dry Coating Lube
by Sprayway, it won't stain wood.

As far as stain goes, I do use Miniwax the most, and
it never comes out like the picture or the wood samples.
Is an oil base the best for my stair application?
What about polyurethanes (not pre-mix)?
