Divide the front half of the tread into three longitudinal sections. Draw a line, 1 foot long, centered on each of the three longitudinal markings. Run the router along these three lines makes grooves in the tread. These grooves will deliver traction under rain or snow. Cut these three grooves in all the steps of the home’s outdoor staircase.
