All our Wood Stair Parts, including Wood Stair Treads and Risers, can be ordered unfinished or prefinished with Tread Coat Varnish, a very durable two-component, commercial grade conversion varnish, specifically made for high traffic areas. We can also stain your Wood Stair Treads and Risers with a standard stain color or apply a custom stain of your choice. We also provide a stain match service. Choose from our standard sizes or contact us for a custom Wood Stair Riser quote. Stair Treads and Risers over 48" long may be slightly oversized with uneven ends.
Our Standard Wood Stair Risers are 3/4" thick x 8" tall.
All Wood Stair Parts are custom made to order. Our Stair Risers are sanded and maintained perfectly on top, while the bottom is left in a potentially rough state, untouched, because when installed, it will never be visible.
Our Standard Stair Treads and Risers are made with a two to three piece glue up.
Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown.
If you prefer to have your stair riser sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
Wire Brushed Texture works best on wood with an open grain, such as White Oak, Red Oak, and Ash. On other tighter grain wood species, the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Unfinished Character Cherry Stair Risers ship out within three weeks, Prefinished Character Cherry Stair Risers have a four week production time.

Cherry heartwood varies from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age and on exposure to light. In contrast, cherry sapwood is creamy white. Cherry wood has a fine uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture, and may naturally contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well and when sanded and stained, it produces an excellent smooth finish. Our character cherry stair parts are made by mixing the heartwood and sapwood and may also have some pith flecks and small gum pockets along with some tight knots.
