Spiral stair in Hedge (Maclura pomifera, bodark, bois d’ark, osage orange). Designed by my friend Cody to join a 100 year old barn basement to the floor above. The barn, just outside of Fall River, got hit by a twister about 4-5 years ago and is now being rebuilt as a workshop and living quarters. The stair isn’t officially finished, we already have a list of things we want to change, but this is it in it’s first state.

Wow, buddy! That’s really spectacular. You know which staircase it reminds me of, right?
Would that be the Loretto Chapel? Thanks, Mikey.
The one and the same! Except we know who the carpenter is who built this staircase in Kansas.
Just like Jacob’s Ladder.
That would be intense, Mark:)
Like practical alchemy. Spectacular.
What a fantastic piece! Love the ‘s’ curve
Thank you, Steph.
