Building the outside edges of curved stair landings typically involves making a template and fabricating the piece at the shop. With L.J. Smith’s Bending Landing Tread you can handle this job on site. Each 5 1/4-inch-wide tread is composed of strips; to customize the width, you add or remove strips.
