I'm thinking to use this nosing.

My question is how do i attach it? Will glue possible be good enough? no.
Screws with pilot holes and glue? Nails. The pine is $15 and oak is $20, i guess the oak is worth the extra? Or will it just crack in a year ? Metal would not look that bad, maybe wiser?

The first pic is the stair, the other two are more just trim. Am i crazy to think it will stay on a stair edge? Looks nice anyways.

For the top, I would use a real nose to match your wood and for the treads I would by treads

Nice space. Interesting layout. What are you going to use it for?

Thanks SS.

I sleep up there. It is nice with the windows on both sides. That platform on the right is just wide enough for a queen size bed.
