FOHC Douglas fir baluster and Newel Posts

FOHC Douglas fir Balusters and Newel Posts

Our Douglas fir balusters and newel posts are made from a solid, single piece of woodthat means no laminations. The grade is Select Structural FOHC (free of heart center). Grades that allow heart center tend to twist and split considerably more than "free of heart center" products. These products are KD (kiln dried to 19% or better). The Select structural FOHC grade allows non-structural knots and splits. These products are available in limited styles and sizes. Our stock baluster is 3-1/2 x 36 (can be cut down as short as 24 inch) and our stock newel is 5-1/2 x 53 (can be cut down as short as 30 inch). The main benefits of our Douglas fir balusters and posts are their low cost, structural capacity and quick turnaround time. Our intention is to keep these in stock for quick shipment.
