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.

About southamptoncarpenter

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. Thank you for visiting my website. I have been in the trade for over 40 years; my 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder was followed by a further 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks followed. I then spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner. As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements. The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly. I cover Southampton, Winchester, New Forest and Waterside.
