Fluted Country French Wood Baluster - #5400. This fluted baluster is 1-3/4" square and is available in 3 different lengths. Turning is 27-1/4" on all 3 length balusters. 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).
