Selecting the right wood for custom stairs is serious business with us. We don't operate with stock numbers, and we don't slap Part A to Part B and call it good enough. Every stair handrail and spindle is cut from just the right piece of wood, with attention paid to all of the elements of grain, form, and cut so the finished product will be impressive and rewarding to see. And do we mind this painstaking approach? Of course not. In fact, we couldn't do it any other way. It would be going against our grain, so to speak, to absentmindedly toss together parts of a staircase or cabinet, which is why it's great that Walton means "custom." Handrail, newel, spindle, riser, panel, hardwood, Catskill, grain, beauty, excellence: these are all synonymous to us.
We believe that how something is structured is reliant upon its design, and that the elements that inform a design must include consideration of architectural principles for wood stair construction. This philosophy of interdependence drives the final form of every custom handrail that rests beneath the hands of our customers. The alliance between these two tenets of creation is the scaffolding, if you will, that underlies every unique run of architectural stairs, every successive degree of gradient that ultimately comprises the spindles through which our customers and their progeny gaze. And we are dedicated to this perspective because it makes sense.
Contemporary or traditional, cabinetry styles are as various as our customers. Whether door styles are insert or overlay or something unique to your specifications, every panel is of traditional construction, meaning face-to-frame, and, of course, every element is made of just the right piece of hardwood. Our architectural stairs are no different, whether you have in mind something elegant and grand or something subtle and understated. We customize to suit you, select just the right lumber of every stair, handrail, and newel post, and is constructed according to time-honored woodworking practices.
