Ordering reproduction spindles is easy. Just email with the following information:
Width: If your spindle has square portions, width of the square(s). If completely turned, then the diameter of the spindle.
Length: how long (tall)
Quantity: how many you need reproduced
Design: give us some idea of the spindle design. Example: square on each end and turned in the middle. Email a picture for a more accurate quote.
With the above information, we can immediately give you an estimate. Then if you’d like to move ahead with the order we can reproduce your spindle. For an exact match, send us an original to our address. If “close” is good enough, then a picture and dimensions will do.
We offer many traditional spindle/baluster designs in several common sizes and lengths. Our designs are reminiscent of popular architectural choices, and if you’re building a new porch, our standard designs will give your project the clean lines and distinguished appearance that a Victorian-era porch should have. For most of our customers, one of our five spindle design styles will work very well. But many of our customers want to refurbish their existing porch with new spindles/baluster, but want to retain the old design. This is not only possible, but is our specialty.
Having your spindles replicated by Western Spindle is a great way to preserve your home’s look. The cost difference is usually minimal: generally, customized spindles/balusters cost about $2 more each than one of our standard design spindles of the same size. For example, our standard 3 1/2 x 26″ Classic spindle in Port Orford Cedar is $32. The same size spindle made to match your existing design will typically be $34 in the same Cedar.
We run high volume equipment that is efficient to use, but costs $150 to setup. This fee is passed on to the customer for orders under $1000, but is waived on orders over that amount.
Keep in mind that once we’ve made your design, we can reproduce an unlimited number of perfect reproductions. If you’re replicating spindles and repair the porch as needed, it’s no problem. We’ve got your design and can produce as many or as few as you need. As with our standard designs, ordering spindles/balusters in quantities of 100 or more does qualify customers for a 5% discount.
At Western Spindle, we strive to create exact replicas of your spindle/baluster design. In order for us to do this, send one original to our shop so we can create your custom design. If “close” is good enough, all we need from you are a few clear digital pictures and corresponding measurements.
As always, please feel free to email or call with questions. We look forward to helping you with your dream porch!
