Better than they look spindles

Long grey painted cast iron spindles

29 of these (plus 2 broken ones) from a farmhouse in Fife. Good typical Georgian pattern and all roughly 37 inches tall. We also have the newel post but this of course is a different pattern....

The most popular style of cast spindle

Ref: 2221

Indeed. This is the style you see in so many buildings in Glasgow and Edinburgh and presumably in many other towns and cities, and yet its a style we don't get very often. Most of our stock of spindle...

Cast spindles

Pitch pine spindles with handrails

We have several lengths of this lovely ballustrading from a job in central Glasgow. The amount of work thats gone into making it would have been enormous and it feels really good to be able to save it...

Lovely timber newels

Ref: 2158

Always a hard thing to source-and more so now as we have to leave staircases until the day before demolition nowadays due to (understandable) health and safety issues, so if the job is a long way off,...

Bearsden gold spindles

Ref: 2079

We have 28 of these (june 2016) from a house up in Bearsden measuring between 36-39 inches long. The stair they came from was very tight and steep and a couple of the spindles have the very top flour...

Edinburgh new towns finest

A really heavy cast iron newel post, a right beauty, that we bought via accidental good fortune. Going to Aberdeen before christmas the Forth bridge was shut, so we had to go via the M9, but this was ...

chunky pitch pine spindles

Fat chunky cast spindles

barleytwist timber spindles

Ref: 1812

Good run of pitch pine spindles we recently bought from the old Langside college. Not the easiest things to make and I really like the way they taper in towards to top. Should strip easily as well....
