Made on one our 3 types of Woodturning lathes, UK Stair Parts produce a sophisticated range of Wooden Stair Spindles that compliment every Staircase and Handrail whether is it modern or traditional. Every Handrail and Baserail carries a groove of matching size. Standard Stair Spindles are produced 900mm and 1100mm long. The longer of the two are mainly used for commercial properties or cut string Staircases where the Stair Spindles are fitted directly to the stair treads or for some gallery landings.

How do i know how many Stair Spindles i need?

When deciding on the amount of stair spindles that you require, there are 2 good methods to use as a general guide, 8 stair spindles per metre or 2 stair spindles per tread. This will give you a very good idea of quantity, although may not be perfect.

A range of Robust Wooden Staircase Spindles

Stair spindles are made in many different designs using many different wood machining techniques. From the very basic 'Blank' design, which is completely square along the whole length of the stair spindle to the very intricate 'Twist' design. With a range of sizes available for each option.

Another stair spindle design that we offer is 'Fluted'. This is a machining technique that can be added to all turned stair spindles such as, Georgian, Colonial, Imperial and Oxford. 'Fluting' is the process of machining vertical grooves into staircase spindles after they have been turned. All designs can be accompanied by a matching newel post when required.

Choosing the Right Spindle for Your Stairs

Choosing the right spindle for your staircase can be time-consuming. There are many different styles that achieve a range of overall looks and designs.

You should take into account your current staircase and the space you have available. You should also consider the styling of your upstairs and downstairs, as your spindles and new staircase need to suit both of these areas. Opting for the more traditional Georgian or Roman spindles will give you that classic homely look, whilst the square spindles will give your home more of a contemporary feel and will compliment and minimalist designs.

Spindle Sizes

All of our Stair Spindles are produced to 900mm and 1100mm long in pine, hemlock, mahogany and oak as standard. If you do not find what your looking for in our range and have a design of your own or an existing pattern to be matched, we can copy this for you from a photograph, drawing or from your old stair spindle.

Staircase spindles are available in a range of different thicknesses, although you will notice that there is more choice of the thicker the spindle size. This is because some of the patterns are so intricate the 41mm and 50mm are the only size spindle that are strong enough to cope. This might also be because the design only looks good on the thicker stair spindles.
