Building A Modern Craftsman Staircase

What is Craftsmanship? My definition: "Precision Carpentry that leads to crisp details, and a visible sense of Pride from the completed work." I just made that up, but it sounds pretty good, eh? There are lots of "Carpenters" in the world, but only a few have the ability to produce the Craftsmanship of a very detailed staircase. What's your definition of "Craftsmanship"?
I recently completed a remodel of a Travis Heights 1920's house with Austin Architect's Rick & Cindy Black. The Black's designed a very detailed staircase for this historic house that fits well to the time period of the house but has some modern detailing. I shot some video during construction and thought I'd share. -Matt Risinger Principle of Risinger Homes in Austin TX
