Our stairs from the 1st to the 2nd floor were an open staircase. We wanted to close this. So that we could provide the steps with laminate transfer steps with risers.

DIY closing the stairs

I measured all the dimensions per step that are needed per step to close the stairs. What is very useful at is that you can give each plank its own name. So that you receive a sticker on each shelf with the specified dimensions and name of the shelf. In my case, for example, step 6.
I chose to drill the 12 mm plywood plates at an angle at the top to be able to attach them to the top. I purchased a very handy tool for this. The Wolfcraft Undercover Jig Set 464200. After assembly, seal the screw holes with wood filler, sand, seal the edges and paint. The job is done.
