    Super job, Ken. Yes, I agree, this is a job best done by the professionals, esp since it's a high traffic area. I will add this to my Google Plus acct (but I'll link to original).

    I'd love to ky, but I need contributors. That's what's holding it back. I don't install nor own a store anymore to be able to create the large number of video presentations I want. If there's anyone in the Atlanta or South Florida (Naples - Tampa) area I'd love to talk if you're interested.

    I am working with a friend in Detroit at the moment, but the only way I could ever achieve this is by him providing a place to stay while doing the filming. I just don't have the finances to run around the country.

    I notice all this sanding, scraping, staining and sealing was done without any kind of tape to protect the painted base, risers and stringers and get a sharp, clean line there. There's no close up of that edge but am I safe to assume those would be getting another coat of paint and that's why they weren't protected?

    ......or is this a process where you can get that sharp and clean edge just by being careful.

    My "refinishing" work has been limited to a handful of screen and recoat jobs. I don't even recall now how I protected the walls/door casings/existing base.

    Yes.

    It is mentioned later in the video that it is part of a remodel and the stairs would be repainted. I asked the guys about this as I too have little experience on the finishing end. Apparently this kind of work rarely happens without a repaint job...or so that's the case with them. Who knows maybe they just walk when they get one of those kind customers? Some guys are like that.:rolleyes:

    Thanks Dan. On the bored side really.
