I love spiral staircases, and I'm sure most of you do, too.

There's something about walking upstairs in circles that's really whimsical. But what isn't enjoyable about these staircases is the fact that they often cost approximately a billion dollars. That's why I wish I could be as handy as this guy, because then I could make my own for a lot less money.

Ben Uyeda of HomeMade Modern decided to build his own spiral staircase using only plywood cutouts.

He used CNC machines to cut out all of the pieces.

Listen. I don't have the skills to build a staircase like Uyeda's, but I could totally go this route.
