Timber Staircase start of curve

I saw this beautiful timber Staircase in a small church whilst on holiday in Norway, it loks like the timber has been bent, but in actual fact, once you look at the curve, you see that the string, is a straight piece of timber, with a slight rise at the end to link into a cut corner piece that holds up the top Newel post As the stair climbs round, the treads are also beautifully done and as I walked up, the hand rail felt natural as did the wind in the treads.

I made a quick sketch on the detail in my moleskin, but the photos from my iPhone, I think does it proud.

As always a few more photos on the flickr Site
