insalling a LJ Smith stair system. What i need to know, that the directions dont tell you is, whats the best wat to install pre-made oak treads and risers with a wrap around bullnose. I am going to glue them, but do you fasten them with finishing nails or is there a better way I am not thinking of? Any ideas would be helpfull.

It'd be best to contact LJ Smith. Another option is screws and dowels.

If the location has a possibility of the nosing being hit use the screws to the height you'll feel safe, from there I'd glue and finish nail.
