Gawaita (Kaidan Gawaita 階段~側板) – this term is used to mean the side panel(s) of shelving, cabinetry, etc, as well as the stringers in a staircase. If the staircase is straight and has no turns it is fairly simple and straightforward. However, stringers become a bit more complex to both make and install when there are one or more turns.
