Layout The Rise And Run Along The Stringer

Set the framing square on the stock as indicated in Figure 47, and layout the rise and run along the stringer. The minimum stringer depth must be 235 mm and the effective depth 90 mm. Make sure the thickness of one tread is cut off the bottom riser before the stringer is installed. Figure 47 shows the height of the top step relative to the finished floor before and after the bottom tread thickness has been removed.
