Wooden Balusters, Spindles and Columns
H.A. Stiles provides finely crafted turned architectural wood pieces in a variety of species for both exterior and interior use.
A balustrade is made up of the handrail, foot rail and wooden balusters, as a section. They are the upright portion of a stairwell, balcony or deck and serve in a decorative and a security capacity. The handrail and foot rail are attached to columns or newel posts to secure in position. In large scale production, these wooden balusters are turned on back-knife or Mattison lathes. More complicated and custom balusters can be made on CNC lathes.
Exterior wooden balusters are needed on entry stairs, but also have further applications around porch rails. These too can be simple, though often are more ornate in showcasing a house for curb appeal.
We offer various styles of interior and exterior shafts for a variety of architectural column styles with corresponding caps, bases and plinth such as Greek, Tuscan, Roman and Corinthian styles.
