While a little extra time was involved in the painting of this porch, you can see the final effect is very stunning.  They’ve used our 4×20″ and 3 1/2 x 26″ Revival Porch Spindleswith the 6″ 4-piece Porch Rail System, both in premium Port Orford Cedar.

Yes, there is still snow in Butte, MT.  But then, a true Montanan would never let a few measly feet of snow get in the way of an exterior restoration project!

Note this homeowner used the 20″ spindles on the lower porch for a 30″ top rail height.  Codes required a taller 36″ top rail height on the upper deck, so she used our 26″ spindles and the same 4-piece Porch Rail System to achieve it.

    How do you paint spindles multicolors. Are there tools that help you keep the color edge sharp? J

    • Great question. The customer finish painted these spindles so we don’t have information on how these were finished specifically. However we have seen customers make a simple jig that holds the spindle between two nails, allowing the painter to spin the spindle while painting. A good professional paint store will have recommendations as to what size/style of brush or applicator to use for this purpose. Hope that helps!
