      Interesting ...... three different folks with extensive experience presenting three different "right" ways to design a stair case.

      Obviously the easiest way is to cut them out on a laser cutter.  They could be cut from a single piece of sheet wood or acrylic, or as the separate notched uprights with inset rungs, which would require far less material because of waste material on the single sheet.

      Bob, you can have 3 different formulas that are only acceptable with limitations and end up with similar outcomes. It's just a matter of how you wish to define it.
      Going by the 2 x rise + going = 25" rule or the rise + going =16" rule or the rise + going = 17" rule without limitations could result in a path with many tripping points or a wall with tiny ledges both of which would be unsafe.

      As long as no one breaks their neck it doesn't really matter.

      Sharing via Facebook seems to be working fine for you John. I assume that picture is set for Public on FB.

       

      So, how do you round over the ends of tho pins so nice?

      Yep, using FB.

      The other side that you can't see isn't rounded.
