The 5410 stair baluster is our most ornate wood baluster. This stair part works well in grand homes that have a Victorian, French, Italian or Orleans influence.
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 of the baluster. The additional length of the balusters 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 of the baluster. 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.

I want to modify three of these balusters (42 in high) to make a support stand for my globe. Is a dimensioned drawing available?

How many balusters would I need for a 12ft long railing?
David, thanks for the question
It depends on the spacing you want – they’re 1 3/4″ at the widest point and code usually requires that you can’t get a 4″ sphere between balusters at any point along the baluster. You can call one of our helpful customer support specialists at (866) 226 6536 to go over the details of your project to make sure you get your order correct.
