 We do not make Barley Twists or reeded twists. Making twists requires special equipment which is different then lathe work.                   Important
  Smooth spindles may be at a lesser cost. Requires a picture and estimate.
Formula:   Machine Cost. ( CHART 1 )    +   Wood Cost ( CHART 2 )  For each spindle.

spindles
How we make Bent Spindles, Slats, Splats and other bent furniture Parts.
        Bent Spindle: Spindles that are curved, (sometimes an "S" curve). are evaluated for curvature, thickness and wood type. Once the details are examined, we duplicate the spindle. Once duplicated it is sat aside. The original is then used to make a mold to form the bend when steamed. The mold is complicated because when the spindle is bent it has spring back or the spindle wants to return to its original shape. The mold is made to accommodate for spring back. The duplicate is steamed and inserted into the mold and clamped. The drying time varies greatly. At least 3 to 4 days. 
         Bent Slats. The same procedure is followed above, except the slat is made by laminating veneer together to make the bend. A mold is made. Spring back is not an issue. Mutable pieces of veneer are inserted in the mold and clamped.  
          Bent Splats. A mold is made larger then the splat. Veneers are cut the size of the mold and glued. The veneers and mold is inserted into a cold press where vacuum is used to make a ridged monolithic blank. The blank is then machined to cut the shape and cut-outs in the splat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spindles with a flat profile will be at a less cost. Send a picture for pricing.
