1 5/8″ Wood Spindle
Our narrowest standard wood spindle, these turned balusters are often used on traditional deck railings and smaller porches. 1 5/8″ deck spindles are cost effective and beautiful.
NEW LARGER WIDTH (up from 1 3/8″). These 1 5/8″ wide porch or deck spindles are the smallest standard width we offer. They are often used on deck railing when the homeowner is looking for something a little fancier than the regular square balusters. These porch spindles are also often used on smaller porches/homes when “overpowering” the exterior is a concern, or where smaller “gingerbread”-type details are used to dress up a home’s curb appeal.
Turned portion is 15″ long, centered in the spindle. Bottom notch option reduces length by 1/8″.
Use our 4″ Rail System
Spacing & Quantity: To meet the 4″ ball rule required by most building codes, space these deck spindles every 4 3/4″ On Center. The smallest diameter of the turned portion is approx. 7/8″, so with a 4 3/4″ O.C. spacing, you’ll have a 3 7/8″ gap between them at the narrowest portion.

Our woodwork is stronger and longer lasting than woodwork produced by others. Why? Because we use better materials
Western Cedar is a great outdoor use wood that has been the standard throughout the US for many decades. Usually when people say simply “cedar”, this is the wood they are referring to. It is highly resistant to decay and very beautiful, and we use only CLEAR Western Cedar so there are NO KNOTS. You simply cannot find a better grade of wood (because it doesn’t exist)! This results in very beautiful, and very stable millwork. Our Western Cedar consists of both Western Red and Incense cedars.
Mahogany is an excellent choice for those wanting a hardwood product. It machines to a smoother finish than Cedar, and of course is stronger, denser, and harder which means it will hold up to abuse better than most other materials. It is an exceptionally beautiful wood that can be either painted or stained with great success. Most pieces are a dark reddish-brown color. And it’s highly rated for natural rot resistance, making it a good choice for exterior as well as for interior applications.
