So please give us a call to place your order and inquire about any of our products.
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.
Mr. Spindle stands by the quality of its products. If there is a problem, let us know. On very limited occasions, we do come across some defected material that doesn’t get caught in our double check process (sanding and boxing). Send us pictures, send us an email, call us, we won’t leave you out in the woods. Some spindles get made in about 30 seconds which doesn’t give us a great deal of time to hand sand and inspect the parts. If you purchase treated material, that pressure treating can do some amazing things to a piece of wood. Sometimes that doesn’t show up for a few days.
Ultimately, the goal of the Mr. Spindle company is to give it’s customers the very best outdoor decking components available at any price. We hope to help you create a recreational backyard environment which can be enjoyed by your family for years to come by utilizing what was once waste wood in the forests of America.
Being a family owned small business, the Matthews family has strived to establish the Mr. Spindle company as the benchmark for quality and on time delivery in the decking components industry. Since 1988, our company has continued to grow producing better and easier to use products. We are proudly selling across America.
Initially using the traditional high volume copy lathes, we have evolved with state of the art computer controlled lathes and CNC tables so that today we can mimic or reproduce any style turning you can imagine.
Our stock items generally ship within two days with most orders shipping that same day or next day. Our custom orders usually ship within five to seven days. Custom work is most dependent on how busy the lathe is and how many parts you are ordering. We can lock that down when you call to place your order!
We ship most often with FedEx Ground, Home Delivery, Freight or SpeeDee Delivery. Upon request, the tracking number can be emailed to you so you can track your package to your front door. We also offer next day and two day delivery upon request if you are in a hurry. Unfortunately, that is the price you pay for procrastination!
Shopping by phone has its benefits. Returns are minimal since we take the order over the phone and we make sure what you want will work for your application. Every case is dealt with on an individual basis but our standard is a 15% restocking fee but may be higher based on the style/size of spindles and you pay for shipping both ways. Custom orders are non refundable unless it is our mistake. That is why we take every step possible to ensure that your custom part is made to your specifications.

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!
Cedar has become a preferred wood for interiors and exteriors of both residential and commercial buildings. Its versatility and appeal to several architectural designs make it one of today’s more requested softwoods.
Even though cedar is fairly light weight, quality conscious builders choose this material for its strength. It’s the perfect choice to be used throughout a building’s structure. Cedar has a built-in natural preservative which resists decay and deterioration, making it an ideal light framing material for fencing and decking.
As the production of cedar continues to increase, responsible logging practices continue to improve. Western Red Cedar is a very tolerant tree … it suffers little from insect attack. Cedar can be grown in shady conditions, thrives in favorable conditions and can withstand strong winds due to its fully developed root system and large buttresses. There is about 44 billion board feet of Western Red Cedar sawtimber on commercial timberland in the United States. Oregon and Washington have more than half of this volume. An estimated 8.7 billion cubic feet of growing stock occurs in Washington, Idaho, Alaska, Oregon, Montana and California.
Redwood’s versatile beauty and durability have made it one of today’s classic building materials. It’s one wood that is appealing in any architectural style, whether it be a traditional residential home or a contemporary office building. Redwood is unmatched in its long lasting elegant appearance by any other wood species or synthetic building materials including woods treated with chemicals.
The advantages of using redwood for exterior applications have been known for many years. The inherent natural chemicals it contains gives redwood a unique resistance to weather and insect causing decay. This makes it a perfect choice for decks, fences and shelters. Some of redwood’s other characteristics include its resistance to shrinking, warping, checking and its ability to hold a variety of finishes because of its dimensional stability.
Many people assume because of the overwhelming size of the redwood tree they are irreplaceable and should be protected from harvesting. When in reality the redwood is the best protected tree in the United States. The Society of American Foresters estimates there are more coastal redwoods in existance today than when logging began in the region. Today, California is home to more than 1.7 million acres of redwood forests. The Society estimated that coastal redwoods occupied no more than 100,000 acres of forestlands in 1964. This total area increased to 181,000 acres in 1978. Today, more than 400,000 acres are set aside in public parks, reserves, campgrounds, wilderness areas and nature study areas for public use.
These massive redwoods are proud to hold the record for being the tallest trees in the world. Spectacular old-growth groves are typically found at the mouths of rivers and where centuries of periodic flooding deposited layers of nutrient-rich soils. Virtually all old-growth trees are protected from harvest, and forestry companies invest millions of dollars to improve water quality throughout the redwood region. Redwoods are also the fastest growing commercial softwood trees in the United States. Trees that are four to ten years old normally grow two to six feet per year.
Redwood lumber comes from privately owned, second- and third-generation forests which have raised sustainable forestry to new levels. With active management, forest-regeneration and continued conservation, we will be blessed with more redwoods in the near future than we currently have today.
Thuja plicata, commonly called Western or Pacific redcedar, giant or western arborvitae, giant cedar, or shinglewood, is a species of Thuja, an evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family Cupressaceae native to western North America. Despite its common names, it does not belong with the true cedars within the genus Cedrus. It is the Provincial tree of British Columbia, and has extensive applications for the indigenous First Nations of the Pacific Northwest.
Western Redcedar is among the most widespread trees in the Pacific Northwest, and is associated with Douglas-fir and western hemlock in most places where it grows. It is found at the elevation range of sea level to a maximum of 2290 m above sea level at Crater Lake in Oregon. In addition to growing in lush forests and mountainsides, Western Redcedar is also a riparian tree, and grows in many forested swamps and streambanks in its range. The tree is shade-tolerant, and able to reproduce under dense shade.
It has been introduced to other temperate zones, including western Europe, Australia (at least as far north as Sydney), New Zealand, the eastern United States (at least as far north as Central New York), and higher elevations of Hawaii.
Thujaplicin, a chemical substance, is found in mature trees and serves as a natural fungicide, thereby preventing the wood from rotting. This effect lasts around a century even after the tree is felled. However, thujaplicin is only found in older trees, and saplings that do not produce the chemical often rot at an early stage, causing some trees to grow with a somewhat hollow, rotten trunk.
The soft red-brown timber has a tight, straight grain and few knots. It is valued for its distinct appearance, aroma, and its high natural resistance to decay, being extensively used for outdoor construction in the form of posts, decking, shingles and siding. It is also widely used throughout Europe and America for making beehives.

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