About Us

Mr. Spindle, Inc. truly is a family-owned and operated business. Our children have been involved in the operations since they were young. As adults, they still take pride in working at the plant.

The goal of the Mr. Spindle company is to give its customers the very best outdoor decking components available at any price. Our vast array of spindles, balusters, porch posts, newel posts, columns, custom turnings, finials, handrails, and post tops are produced from the world’s finest cedar, redwood, Brazilian IPE, and American pine. Our products will help you create the porch or deck your family will enjoy for years to come. Mr. Spindle also has an assortment of interior products also.

We have been selling Cedar boards since 1977. We came into the manufacturing side of the industry in 1988 when our board company realized we had customers looking for Cedar decking and porch components. That is when Mr. Spindle was born. We started with a hand full of parts being produced and since evolved into a company which produces about 400 different products with additional products being added each day. Custom turning and restoration jobs have been a strong part of that addition to our line over the last 10 years. Custom jobs enable us to add about 2-3 parts per week. Send us your picture and we can see if we’ve manufactured it before and if not we will add it to our library of products at a reasonable price. We have so many styles that are not pictured. Don’t settle for something when restoring history!

Go Green!

Our customers might notice we use the shorter lengths available in cedar and redwood for our products. By using lengths down to 5″ pieces of fiber for our postcaps and in our finger jointing program, we have helped develop an industry that is now using what was once scrap lumber.

Truly a renewable resource, cedar and redwood manufacturers are now using everything, including the saw dust … Please use our products with the knowledge that our industry is truly “GREEN.” Thank you!


The Folks at Mr. Spindle have teamed up with Timber Holdings USA and their line of Iron Woods® products to create a line of durable, gorgeous IPE spindles.

Ipe (Tabebuia spp-Lapacho group)

Discover the unique properties that make Iron Woods® Ipe an easy choice for any project. Iron Woods® brand Ipe naturally resists wear, rot, splintering, termites, fire, chemicals, marine borers and virtually every other threat imaginable. And it does it beautifully. Iron Woods® brand Ipe is the benchmark in residential and commercial wood products. Our residential decking is even covered by a 25-year warranty.

This Brazilian species is one of the most stable of all the durable timbers. It dries extremely well with little checking, twisting, or bow. It is widely recognized for its strength and natural resistance to decay. It can be used in ground contact without preservatives or additional treatments. The timber has been tested by the US Navy in a Panama Canal study from 1962 showing Ipe to be one of the top performers in resistance to decay, termites, and borers. Of those tested, it was one of the very few that is readily commercially available. Widely used in commercial exterior construction such as boardwalks, piers and benches, it has recently become the best choice for residential decks due to its low maintenance, attractive color, and extremely smooth surface that has stood the test of time. It is a heavy timber, approximately 69lbs. per cubic foot when dry, generally sinks in water, and is fire resistant. Ipe has many common and trade names including Brazilian Walnut, Bethabarra, Tajibo, Mataverde, Pau Lope, and other trademark names.

Strength & Durability

Iron Woods® Ipe is indeed tough. Ipe from Timber Holdings USA earns the top durability rating of 25 plus years in commercial applications like the Atlantic City boardwalk. Just think how long they will last for you.

Iron Woods® Ipe’s amazing performance can be attributed to its incredible density. Ipe weighs as much as 69 pounds per cubic foot. Compare this to domestic woods like Southern Pine at 35 pounds and Redwood at 28 pounds! Timber Holdings USA Iron Woods® Ipe is five times harder. No other wood comes close to its superior strength.

This is achieved through investment in programs and organizations whose efforts support sound forest management and sustainability.

First thank you...

for all the great products you sold us! Everything was/is as good as it gets! My friend wants a price on 4 handrails (designer) just like you sold us. (2) tops and (2) bottoms.

Posts arrived and are so perfect! I’m super picky and you all did a terrific job! I’ll take a picture when they are installed and forward to you.

Thanks! Terri


Terri – Glen Ellyn, IL


My name is John Weeks and I’m the Construction Coordinator on ABC Television’s “Resurrection”.

During our recent construction of the front porch of a new stage set, we ran into a bit of trouble matching the spindles of a house that we had previously shot on a location.

We HAD to find the spindles fast.

I called my usual suppliers to no avail. They were either going to take too long or be too expensive.
In desperation I Googled, found, and called Mr. Spindle.
I sent them a drawing, they had a very close match and we were off to the races.

Here’s the cool part: They turned almost a hundred of them the next day before we even had time to set up an account.
Three days later (again, before the account was even set up) the product arrived on a pallet.

I cannot say enough good things about this company. The quality of the work, the trust they extended me, and the speed with which they shipped them to me was outstanding.

The price more than offset our desire to order within the state of Georgia, which we have to do to utilize a state tax incentive on purchases.

I have told many other buyers around here about Mr. Spindle and will continue to do so.

Please take this as a ringing endorsement of this fine company. I very rarely get the chance to say that, believe me.

The porch post look great. Thank you for your time getting them just right.

Come spring I’ll get back in touch as I have a whole bunch of spindles to do.

Best Regards,


Matt – Buffalo, NY

Hello Mr. Spindle Team,

The post arrived in record time and we have been busy as bees, getting them ready to go up! I just wanted to say that I think they are beautiful! We were really shocked to get them so fast and I want to thank you again for our wonderful cedar post. Hope you have a great rest of the year, and throughout the holidays coming! Blessings on you and yours.


The Crafts – Dubach, LA

Hi Kary,

We received the finials. They are perfect.

Thank you.


Lois – Merrick, NY

Hi Kary

Thought I’d show you how my post caps and finials turned out. Totally awesome!! We will be putting in a picket fence in the future. I’m mentioning this because I’d like to order 20 mire finials and caps when it’s time.


Hi Kary,

Thank you for your help again, there are many “Mr. Spindle” balusters around Elgin on porches we have built and you guys have always done first-class work!

Scott Savel – All Around Home Improvement



Thank you so much. You your attention to detail is unmatched. With little prep, I was able to paint and install the ball top post caps!

Andrew Eisman

Well the spindles were delivered this week and they are just perfect! Not sure how you got such a perfect match but they are exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you!

Erin Sibley

I am a carpenter aficionado and for this project (a coffee table) it took me a while to find the right legs. That was my fault, I mean my fault because I didn’t look in the right place. Now, after finding Mr. Spindle, it is the first and only place I look. Forget about the gorgeous online catalog they have. What really got me is the personalized attention, guidance and professionalism from my first inquiry to delivery which made the process a breeze. Thanks guys!

I started searching online and came across Mr. Spindle . And here is where we get excited. Not only are the folks at Mr. Spindle pleasant to deal with and knowledgeable about their products, but also they are up to the task of reproducing my baluster at a VERY decent price.

Read my blog @ http://fairytoon.blogspot.com/2012/04/near-perfect-match.html

Quality product and excellent finish provided in a timely fashion, superb communication through out the process! A+

David Shapiro

I have a house built in 1907, and I wanted something special for the front stairs and front porch. I sent Mr. Spindle photos of the balusters on my sleeping porch and they not only matched them, but did so at a considerably better price than I could buy non custom locally here on Long Island. I also wanted a special newel post and extra large hand rails, all of which were expertly done and delivered in a very reasonable time. If you are looking for a great product, at a fair price, and something you will be proud to have in or part of your home, this is the place to go!

Just want to say thanks for “embracing ” the opportunity to do an odd size baluster for us. The customer was so thrilled to get what they specified and I now have a great new resource for turnings!

Ann Miller
Greenfield Millworks

Kary, they turned out really great. I have already recommended you guys to a couple friends! Thanks for all the help. Top notch, professional and very reasonably priced job.

Mr. Spindle helped us make custom balusters that turned out exactly the way we imagined. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product!
