In re-watching the video as TC builds a step from curly maple, it occurs to me that a better approach might have been to make the step full width and flip the wood trimmed from the front edge under the step, book-matching the grain on the front. This would give you about the same lip thickness but with almost invisible lines.

Hey Russell this post got me thinking. I think Tommy is right you will see a line either way. what I was thinking was make the step full width and the support to the correct width than bevel cut them at 45 deg.and glue them up.You wouldnt see any line( if the joint is good and tight) It would look like one piece. the only challenge would be to get a good tight fit on the dovetail on the lower part of the support.
