When I think of sawn balusters, I think of steamboats on the Mississippi. You might also think of a Swiss chalet or of a gingerbread house. Sawn balusters are also known as cut balusters or flat sawn balusters. These elements are cut out of flat boards and they range from primitive to simple designs to very ornate designs.
We craft sawn balusters by hand, using a pencil as the main design tool. We cut them on a band saw for the outside cuts, a scroll saw on the inside cuts. We sand them ready for paint. This is appropriate technology, very competitive for small runs of custom made parts. In spite of our old-fashioned methods, our sawn balusters are reasonably priced, very much in line with the cost of stock balusters.
