Reinstating stair handrail and spindles in Southampton

The previous owner of this property had removed the handrail and spindles, the new owner wanted them put back.

Because the newel post had been completely removed I had to machine one from 100mmx100mm stock to fit into the stud wall cavity  with an angled mortice to cover the stair string, then a wider than usual base rail needed to be machined to cover the stud wall. The handrail was a stock item from a supplier, the spindles were machined on site with a stopped chamfer.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 40 years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I 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 and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
