The Knowlton House, Ipswich, MA. Complete restoration of an original Georgian period staircase. Work included: removal and structural restoration of stair. Careful repair of handrail and balusters. Then the stair was placed back exactly where it came from. Original dowels along with modern fasteners were used to secure it back in the same place the master carpenter (Captain Knowlton) installed them almost 300-years ago. 2nd picture: 2nd floor landing with original handrail and balusters, but recreated wainscoting.
