Wood Turning Designs and Services from Stableford’s

Bespoke creator of lighting and interior designs Stableford’s apply their know-how in a wide variety of projects and services. Among others, they are using their 25 years of woodworking experience in creating wood turning projects serving both the construction and the interior design markets.


The owner of the brand, Glenn Stableford, says: “We pride ourselves on creating beautiful quality decorative timber products for new build developments, high-class conversions and prestige refurbishment projects. We also design and manufacture bespoke pieces for the home. Our clients include renowned architects, property developers, building contractors, shop fitters, joinery manufacturers and interior designers.”



Superior Quality

The quality of Stableford’s turning and finishing is widely regarded as exceptional and always commented on by their clients. Glenn further explains: “Our one-off projects are all individually turned, while the larger volumes required for housing or commercial projects are turned on copy lathes. Of course, none of this means very much without a prompt, efficient service and we ensure that our turnarounds suit both our bespoke commissions and the greater quantities for housing developments.”


Wood Turning Services

Stableford’s offer complete stair balustrading service, in standard range as well as in bespoke specifications. They also create ornamental or interior design pieces, including lamps, mirror frames, various pieces of furniture and mouldings, “in fact any architectural component, from the smallest oak door knob to large diameter columns” they add.




Stableford’s are able to supply just about any turned product, and their portfolio includes flute, reed and rope twist designs, newels, spindles, columns, newel caps, bun feet, door knobs, long hole boring, architectural components, chair legs, table legs, candlesticks.



Turned items can be finished or left sanded and/or primed. In matters of details, Glenn Stableford explains that:
“Our sanding is all done by hand and eye for a better, sharper finish. We spray on the paint or lacquer as this provides a better smoother finish than by brush. For that extra special effect, gold and silver leafing can be applied to our newels and spindles, as well as to our home furnishing products such as table lamps, standard lamps and candlesticks.”



Stableford’s wood turning services include the areas of:

Stair Balustrading
Stableford’s can supply complete stair balustrading systems, including newel posts, spindles, handrail and newel caps, or the individual stair parts according to client’s requirements.

Their designs can be made to match existing features, for example a beautiful English oak staircase to complement the solid oak flooring of the hallway. Also, Stableford’s created three standard ranges for supplying builders and developers, and for stocking by joinery merchants. These profiles: Rothbury, Jedburgh and Berwick can also be customised to specifications.



Glenn Stableford’s explains the details of production and finishing of their balustrading components:
“All our newel posts and spindles are individually turned. The balustrading is then sanded by hand for professional smooth, sharp finish, and can be spray finished to any colour, stained or simply a clear lacquer coating as required for a superior finish and durability. We also offer a choice of specialist finishes, including hand painting, and gold and silver leafing to provide an elegant entrance to your homes and a visible point of difference.

Our stair balustrading can be pre-finished and delivered ready to fit so that no on-site finishing is necessary. This offers you significant savings in time and cost. Alternatively, the balustrading can be supplied simply sanded and primed for customers to apply their own top coat.”


Timber Variety

Stableford’s can source and turn any timber to suit client preferences and project requirements, including European Oak, American Oak, Ash, Pine, Beech, Sapele, Tulip, Walnut, Maple, Mahogany, Hemlock and Cherry. All their supplies are from merchants who certify that their timber is from sustainable sources.
