Center a strip on each step, keeping its edge about 1 cm from the bottom of the log. To ensure proper distance, lay a scrap piece of strip along the base and shoot the target strip against it. Nail the strip in place with 8d nails. Space nails 1 cm from each end and 3 inches apart the whole. Except for the top of the nose and the floor of the base of the stairs. The “nose” is the rounded lip of the step surface that stretches about 1 inch horizontally past the vertical surface ladder.
