Free Form Stairway

I want to get back to stairways and one of the coolest 
I have seen lately is one that Andrew has built.

You may remember previous posts I have done
 on Katie and Andrew's urban farm:
A Solar House,

It is hard enough to build a spiral staircase, 
but it gets really hard when one uses non-dimensional wood. 

How he figured this out is beyond me.

I love the newel post and cap here. 

As a post script - always keep the rise and run consistent 
following the rules for determining the proper relationship
 between the two, and follow all codes relating to stairways.
