I am trying to replace the carpet with hardwood. I suppose the
carpet on the stairs have some thickness too. Can I use a thin
treads to replace the carpet then?
To solve my original problem of covering up the cross section
of the plywood, Maybe I can use a 1" thick wood riser to fill
nosed out plywood, and use 1/2" (or 3/8") thick treads that will
stick out hardwood treads. Then place something like shoe moding
under the hardwood tread nose, to cover the plywood cross section.
Is that doable?
I am not sure if I can find that kind of moding (1"x 0.5" quarter
rund) or (1" x 3/8") though. If you know any place that sells that
of stuff, let me know.
