Has anyone ever made or used stairway stringers made of logs or half-logs? I would like to take some large, dried red cedar logs, and make them into stringers by cutting into them for the risers and treads. But since I don't need the whole log diameter for support, I'm thinking of notching in for the risers and treads and then ripping the log in half perpendicular to the notches. The result would be two perfectly matched stringers flat on one side. Ever seen this?
