Handrail and Spindles

The hardwood handrail and spindles were stained and painted prior to installing them, this makes for a lovely crisp finish, spindles chosen here are  Hemlock 41 mm colonial whilst the handrail and base rail are Sappeli, originally the whole stair was boarded, the original newel posts were used with the top sanded back ready for staining  so that it matches the handrail by a painter.
