Christopher I'm in the same boat with mud overtaking any part of tiling as the most enjoyable part....besides getting paid of course

Chris, I didn't run sticks on this one, I was just going for semi flat/plane. This is a cinder block wall in a basement that moved and was a 1/2" off the top step and 4" off the landing. I was just trying to take the buckle out and get me flush up to the trim up top. I am putting piers in to try to keep it from going anywhere else and I will cut new treads for all the steps and plywood for the landing so the go all the way over to the mud. Hence the optical illusion reference. It really caught the eye when you walked down the steps.

If I was going to put sticks in I think I would do something like this or maybe just the ones on the ends of my screed was long enough.

Funny thing, I've done a boat load of mudwork but never used the sticks. I make the rails out of mortar and let em set for a day. Done a lot of stairs though. Seeinz you didn't use screed rails of any kind that looks awful good. Them steep steps musta been a pain to work on though.
