Note the two bottles of glue that the carpenter will need to bend the handrails to fit the stairway. Figure 1-22 shows the curvature of the staircase. The first step in bending the handrail begins upstairs where a couple of the strips of oak that are thin enough to bend easily are glued together and clamped to conform to the curve of the stairway (Figure 1-23). Later, more strips will be added, and each time the added strip will be clamped until the glue dries.
