Country French Wood Baluster - #5400. This baluster is 1-3/4" square and comes in 3 different lengths (34", 38" or 42"). Turning on baluster is 27-1/4" on all baluster lengths. Available in several different species of wood. These balusters are "elegant rise" balusters which means that the turned portion of the baluster remains the same length across all 3 lengths and the additional length is on the bottom square section. This allows the pattern to follow the rake of the stair case as it goes up and in most circumstances is the preferred method. These wood balusters DO NOT have a dowel pin on the bottom block. The balusters can be installed with either a 3076 metal baluster fasteners or our wood dowels (sold separately).
