Tansu Stairs

Initially I was not going to build stairs for Arborion. I thought that the room they would take up was not worth accessing the sleeping loft more conveniently, nor the extra storage space. However, I slowly came around to seeing the benefits beautiful tansu style stairs could offer.

Initial clamping to make sure everything lines up before gluing

Where ever possible we used a datto for more strength when joining the 3/4″ maple plywood. The front edge is banded with walnut, but the inside is left the lighter maple in order to reflect more light.

The largest cabinet opening will be used for hanging clothing like shirts and jackets.

A little chiseling and sanding

Dad built the pulls that will be inserted into the top right corner of each door.

The treads are red oak with a very dark stain to match the flooring.

Loft Storage

Much has happened since my last post. We have been busy finalizing designs and building the cabinets for Arborion. The first of these cabinets were ‘foot lockers’ for loft storage. I call them foot lockers because they are one foot high by one foot deep and used for storage. They also create a nice shelf just below the gable windows.

They are constructed from solid maple stock for the face frames and cleats, along with 1/2″ maple plywood. There is also a 1/2″ walnut plywood top on each.

Assembled and clamped up

There is a center partition for reinforcement which compliment a pair of bi-pass sliding doors.

Ready to transport and install
