Rick Stone is Making 37 Replacement Stairway Spindles

Updated: Sep 15, 2022

Bob Wolfe found out that Rick Stone was turning 37 poplar replacement stairway spindles and suggested that we (as in Larry Sefton) video record the process.

So, on short notice Larry grabbed a webcam (a HD video camera would have been preferred) and head off to Rick Stone's workshop. Following is the video for your learning and enjoyment of Rick completing start to finish one spindle.

Most impressive is that there was NO editing of the video from the time the poplar blank was loaded on the lathe until completed. You will see the complete process in real time. Text and some photos were added to clarify. Again, there are no cuts or do-overs.
