Spiral staircase, take 2

Spiral staircase, take 2

This is the 1/4 scale model of the spiral staircase I am making for our kitchen. This is really just a "rough draft", so forgive me. I decided to make this up for our building inspector because it was just odd enough, and I didn't want to surprise him with anything. Besides, he had some great suggestions, such a physiatric help. Who knew they knew anything about staircases…? The building inspector was pleased, so that is good. Many thanks to Rich and others for their suggestions on how to form the handrail.
This is a quarter scale model, so if this turns out to be too ominous of a project, I will probably just build a ¼ scale kitchen instead. My wife suggested I should just build three more of these and be done with it.
