Your contractor can purchase square paint grade material from any decent lumber yard but you probably need a good stairbuilding contractor to get this professional look. Good luck.

Spindles? - Love the straight, modern-looking spindles. I am renovating a staircase but my contractor can't find them anywhere. Do you know where I could purchase those?

The spindles used in this staircase are square--not round.
