I wouldn't want a staircase like that in my own house (because it's impractical for moving furniture, it takes up quite a bit of floor space, and it looks a bit odd). However, I have major respect for the craftsmanship involved in building a spiral staircase (y)

Nice to see someone respecting fellow trades, too, rather than bashing them as though they're all wkrs. There's good and bad in all trades - I take each person as I find them.

One I did a few year ago, used 6mm contour board. Hats out to you doing yours, that internal spiral is a tricky one.
