The 5015 wood stair baluster is the most popular baluster in North America. This stair part is in the colonial family and is easily used in any style of home. It is a pin top baluster that should be drilled into the handrail. This baluster is an economy product. The design and ease of turning makes this an affordable product to install in a banister. If you need a simple baluster for your stairway, this is a good choice. You can have this product produced as a primed baluster or in an exotic wood such as Brazilian Cherry or Mahogany. It is also available as a domestic wood such as Ash or Oak.
StairSuppliesTM offers balusters in two styles, Contemporary and Traditional. What varies between these two styles is the turning and block length, see below for details (click on images to the left to see examples):
The turning on these balusters remains the same no matter the length. The additional length will be added to the bottom block. This makes the turnings on the balusters match the slope of your handrail.
The bottom block on these balusters remains the same, no matter the length. What varies is the turning length. This makes for a more staggered look, as the turning begins at the same point on all balusters on each step.
Wood Grain & Color VariationAt StairSuppliesTM we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural character of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSuppliesTM, you acknowledge that there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.
what is the length of the bottom section?
The bottom block on these balusters can vary depending on what style you choose. If you choose Traditional Series balusters, they will be 7″ long, regardless of the height of the baluster. If you choose Contemporary Series balusters the bottom block will range from 7″ to 13″.

What is the difference between a 5015-34 baluster & a 8134 baluster and how can I identify which type I already have?
