The spindles are beautifully lathed. They are all uniform and fit perfect into my project: a vintage screen door. Using "Cull" or scrap wood from a local lumber yard that was on sale for 70% off and rescued screen door screen, along with these spindles, I have created an impressive shabby-chic screen door for less than $20. Normal retail is well over $100+. Thanks Woodpeckers Crafts. I will be shopping your products again.
