The Right Spindles

Spindlesstain

I thought it might be interesting to post updates on my Tudor project as it progresses. Today the subject is spindles for the two staircases. At some point characterless mid-century spindles had been installed, totally wrong for Tudor style. For the rear staircase we chose a simple, classic design, squared on top and bottom, with just enough detail to provide visual interest. We painted them to match the trim.  For the more imposing front staircase, the spindles are bigger, thicker, more detailed and a lot of work to stain. Every element in a design is important, and the sweep and drama of the stairs are punctuated by the elegance and detail of the spindles. I’ll post photos of the finished staircases.
