Fretwork spandrels are produced by carefully combining
brackets and running trim to form a single unit. Some have
a symmetrical center scroll design to enhance their effect.
Though fretwork spandrels are generally more expensive than
brackets alone, or simple running trim, they are the most
dramatic way of adding charm and elegance to porch areas
or interior openings, such as window and door casements.
All spandrels have 13/16" thick fretwork on a 1-1/4"
frame. Great care is taken to ensure that ends are square
and spindles are properly spaced.
Pricing on our spandrels are based upon a Paint grade wood. Other woods are available. Let us know where the spandrel will be used or whether you need a stainable item. We do not price any of the spandrels under a 6 foot length, even though some can be built less than 6 feet. Example: A 39" length would cost the same a 72" length.
We have Cypress, Poplar, oak, and poplar available. Most pricing shown based upon poplar.
Spandrels may also be attached to ceilings or ceiling beams
as a visual partition separating two living areas which
are not separated by walls. In homes where kitchens and
dining areas are separated by a counter only, a spandrel
may be placed directly above the counter to produce a visually
pleasing separation between the two areas.
