#340 TECHNIQUES - Smooth sided stairs
Today's technique is smooth sided stairs created by Rocko on Flickr. Check it out here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rockandballs/3467604016/in/photostream/
It utilises many awesome technique, but the one I want to talk about today involves the stairs themselves. Using 1x1 cylinders and 1x2 bricks, Rocko has created the inner wall of the stairs. This curved shape allows him to build out the steps and line up the brick perfectly on the other side with no gap at all. This relies heavily on the inner wall to have the angle just right so that the outer steps line up perfectly.
