Spindles

Wood Deck & Stair SpindlesWe have 400 different variations of spindles styles, turnings, lengths  and dimensions.  Spindles, also known as balustrades, can come plain or with decorative turnings.

 

We think it's best if you start with the dimensions of the spindle base: 2x2, 2x3, 3x3 or our big boys- 4x4.

Want to Paint Your Spindles or Balusters?

Yes!  You can paint our spindles and balusters.

Many folks don’t realize that if you want to paint your spindles or balusters, you can save some money by going with our pressure treated kiln dried after treatment over cedar. 

Our pressure treated spindles and balusters are kiln dried after treatment.  That means not a lot of bleeding from the pressure treatment when painting your balusters or spindles.

Our spindles are clear, so you won’t have any knots. 

Not only pressure treated spindles and balusters sold by many of the big box stores are kiln dried, so they are not good candidates for painting.

S&L Spindles have a real smooth finish; you won’t have to spend hours sanding it smooth, so painting is easy and the finish product looks great.

For an even sharper look, do what some of our other customers have and paint different parts of the spindle or baluster in different colors to accent the piece.

For example, paint the balls black and the rest of the spindle white.

How to install deck spindles:

  1. Cut your top and bottom handrail to length.
  2. Lay them side by side.

For bottom handrail place your spindle on the top of the handrail and drive your screw in from the bottom. For top handrail place your spindle on bottom of handrail and drive your screw in from the top.

When shopping for the best spindle, make sure that they have a smooth turning and have no splits.   The Spindles from S&L are treated with a non arsenic application and can easily be painted.  Painting spindles?  A good tip is to put a good primer on the spindle.  You can cover the grain, the texture or any small hairline cracks first so the paint will last longer and you'll have a much better looking spindle when you are down.

Our wooden fences pickets are a full 3/4 inch thick and kiln dried after treatment.  What you buy at a big box store is thinner and made with rough lumber.  Our wooden fence pickets are a notch above others because they are thicker and kiln dried.  Customers ask "How Soon can I stain my handrail or preserve on it?"   To help maintain the natural color, put preserve on it as soon possible.  You may have heard that you have to wait to preserve it.  But since our handrails are already kiln dried, you can apply the stain or preserve right away.  Our handrails are already dry so you can stain in right away.

 

Thickness of pickets for wooden fences:

Ours are a full 3/4 inch thick so it really sturdy.  It won't bow or twist. If go you with something thinner its likely to bow, twist split etc.

How to install fence pickets for a wooden fence

Our best advice is to make sure your pickets are no more than 4 inches apart- which is National Code and meets child safety regulations.  Some more expert advice on wooden fences:  Fasten 2x4's upright to your posts and THEN fasten the pickets to your upright 2x4's.  We recommend using 2 inch stainless or ACQ approved screws.
