Product Description

Reversible False End Starting Step

A false end starting step would be any stair tread that you wouldn't use to walk up and down a staircase. False end starting steps are used in applications where a volute or turnout is utilized and a full starting step is not needed due to carpeting or other flooring covering the center of a stairway. We can custom make the step to your needs based on measurements that you provide. Includes tread, riser and universal trim. Available in a variety of wood types.

  • Reversible false end works for left or right hand steps
  • Looks great with a box newel or a pin top newel post and volute 
  • Used with right hand and left hand volutes or turnouts
  • Great for remodeling existing stairways and new construction
  • Riser, shoe and cove molding trim included
  • Beautiful, unfinished hardwood tread
  • End Depth: 13" 
  • Lenght: 17"
  • Tickness: 1-1/16"
  • 6-3/4" riser height (can be trimmed to your desired height)
  • Overall height: 7-3/4"
  • Nosing has a 1 1/2″ overhang
  • Ample room for volutes and balusters
  • Offers the warm appeal of natural wood
  • Designed for interior installation
  • Can be finished to match handrail
  • Tread is made of real solid wood
  • Riser is made of plywood
  • Has only one curved finished end

This reversible false end starting step is used to finish the bottom step for use with volute or turnout.

  1. Great and easy to install Product

    Posted by Eran on Mar 2nd 2019

    We are replacing a railing and had to rebuild the false stairs. This product is exactly what we needed. While the false stair step needed a bit more glue, it was nothing a little Liquid Nails couldn’t fix.
