I purchased 9 custom-turned porch posts, a couple hundred custom-turned spindles and railings from Western Spindle for a c.1900 wrap-around porch with balustrades and spandrels. The property is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Not only was the craftsmanship excellent, but the custom turnings and railings were designed based on an old photograph. The designs from the photo required a considerable effort – scaling sizes and details, and several dozen email exchanges to get it as right as possible. Western Spindle’s dedication to detail made the result nothing less than spectacular. Since installation, we have seen cars driving by and stopping to take pictures of the house.

Fantastic company to work with and awesome product. Highly recommended! They were able to match the spindles and railing system of our 1905 house porch that we 100% rebuilt.

When I needed replacement spindles recreated for my porch Western Spindle was most helpful. The price was reasonable and efficient in service. The spindles matched the old ones perfectly. Could not be happier.

Everything was really well made and as expected. One item I ordered broke in transit and they quickly and graciously sent a replacement at no cost. It arrived in perfect condition. Very pleased with the craftsmanship and service.

I was contracted by an insurance company to rebuild a patio where the barbecue started a fire and caught the railings on fire. The railing was constructed with 4 inch spindles and I could not find them anywhere in the Vancouver BC area. Through the internet I found American Porch and shipped them a burnt sample of what was left of the railing. Within 2 weeks they shipped me 12 spindles which were identical cedar pieces and which were a fraction of the price if I was to have them turned in a wood working shop. The client was very happy and so was I.

I live in Seattle WA. and was told by the local lumber yard about these folks. I was restoring a 105 year old railing and needed new custom parts, Western Spindle came thru without a hitch. Fantastic job at a fantastic price. Thanks for the great product you supplied. I am just getting around to installing it, but I have no doubts that it will be the crowning touch to the project. Thanks to you and yours for a job well done.

My home has a large amount of decorative woodwork such as railings and brackets that were wood. My dealings with Adam over the past three years have been very helpful in getting all these wooden moldings replaced with PVC [Polyurethane] material. He was always very helpful and everything I ordered was exactly what I expected and was in great shape. Would recommend this company to anyone looking to update their home with material that’s not going to rot.

Just a quick note: Contractor put the posts up, and every car that goes by slows down or stops to look, even though the front yard is littered with construction stuff and a dumpster. Seems to me more cars go by than usual, it’s a small town, so word must have gotten around- new attraction to see.

This is a short note to thank you for the wonderful railing which we installed at our new house. You may remember us from the porch rail order about 15 months ago, just when we were having our baby. We had a lot of trouble with our builder but we replaced them with a new builder who was very good. We’re planning to move in next Saturday.
We got the spindle number exactly right, with just one to spare. It looks gorgeous and we’re very happy. So thank you for all that.

The delivery took all day — I guess the truck broke down and they had to get another to pick up the parts and make it. But everything came in good condition, and we completed the work earlier today. It looks really nice. Better, I believe, than the original balcony. We were very pleased with the precision of the work — there was no room for error in the measurements. You guys nailed it. Looking forward to spending some time back on the balcony this summer.
