Hardwood Stair Question

I'm starting a major remodel on my home soon and will be putting in Bloodwood floors. Its the stairs that are giving me the trouble. I know 5/4 or 1" thich is standard for treads and this is fine with somthing like oak, but I have only found Bloodwood in 4/4 (too thin after milling, or is it?) and 8/4 (too thick and expensive). My question is are the 3/4" flooring planks usable for stair treads? Here's what i'm thinking, use 3/4" plywood on treads covered by the 3/4 " hardwood planks, the risers (which will be painted wood) will cover the ply tread, I can eaven use a routed out housed stringer like normal. one more issue, the bull nosed leading edge and return should be one inch or so thick, right? so I guess I will have to custom rabbet these from larger stock. Am I on the right track or should I scrap the idea. Thanks

glue 2 4/4 boards together or glue a cheaper & thinner wood to the back.

The maximum difference between all risers should be < 3/8" or so. You usually don't lay the top and bottom treads if there is existing floors above and below. How do one handle this difference?

You are correct, you can use the flooring strips with a bull nose and it is typically 1 1/8. Not a sgood looking over time as solid treads. For bull nosing, glue some together if necessary.
