I'm familiar with typical differences in lumber measurements, such as 2x4 means it's a 1.5 etc.. anyone know the reason this piece being a 2x2 would only measure 1-1/4"? I needed a 1.5" board for a TV riser and got this one and was stumped at the 1.25" measurement. I've never seen this before.

Answer: 
My original 2x2s on my original deck (~ 30 years ago) were ripped from a 2x4 and thus like you said, they actually were about 1.5 x 1.5. These 2x2s actually look much better because they do not have the rough cuts due to they were planned and sanded to get the roughness removed. Hope that helps!!

Answer: 
but the description states the actual size is 1.25" and that's exactly the size it is.. it couldn't have shrunk that much..

Answer: 
It is possible the wood baluster came from the wood mill at the appropriate size and as the wood dried over time it shrank.

Answer: 
No, they are sanded/planned from a ripped 2x4. Looks nicer without the rough cut that I had originally used on my deck ~ 30 years ago.

funny I got this request to answer today as i'm the one that wrote the other question in the Q&A section.. here's what I put... I'm familiar with typical differences in lumber measurements, such as 2x4 means it's a 1.5 etc.. anyone know the reason this piece being a 2x2 would only measure 1-1/4"? I needed a 1.5" board for a TV riser and got this one and was stumped at the 1.25" measurement. I've never seen this before.
So I actually purchased this as a single unit and it measured less than 1.5" for me. I searched around on the other packs of this 2x2 product (different lengths offered) and found a reply by the Weathershield company.. they specify that the measurements are nominal, not actual..
Actual size is 1-1/2" × 1-1/2"
In short, no, they're not a full 2". I can't understand why they don't list that it's nominal on all of their listings even after being asked. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I bought 10 packages (160 balusters). None of the packages had no culls in them. Most packages had quit a few with problems. The problems were: bowing; mildew; loose knots and cracks; and errant sawcut marks. The cut marks was the most prevalent of the issues. These marks were deep and were always down at the beveled end of the baluster. My client was nice enough to except the use of some of these, since they were in an area of the deck that he didn't feel would be very visable. I don't usually write reviews, and I try to be gracious; leaving room for human error. I felt I needed to speak up on this one however. These issues were very noticeable, and could have been caught in several areas of the process. prior to coming to me. October 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pressure treated 2 x 2 pickets mitered on 1 end Excellent value of a 16 pack of 2 x 2 pickets which was used for replacing deck railing. Less expensive than purchasing the pieces individually. The price also included FREE shipping right to our door. Very happy to find this item was mitered on one end, which literally saved me hours of work. The wood was pressure treated, which will hold up well in the damp weather in the Seattle area. Also bought other lumber from Home Depot to complete the project. Although one of the pieces was broken, I would recommend this product. June 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baluster Finishing touch to porch streps and handrail purchased July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value Some pieces had too many imperfections/dents, etc. maybe they were to add style or rustic design? but I prefer clean pieces. Good amount for cost. Wish these were available in my local store so I could pick out my pieces. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2 by 2 Pressure treated Baluster The rails aren't 2 by 2 but 1.25 by 1.25 by 42 inches . Good quality , easy to install but required a pilot hole to install , in order to keep from cracking . June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Better than buying at the store. On line merchandise was a much better product and I had no waste. They were all straight and even. The ones I saw at the store were very crooked. Would buy this product again. As a matter of fact I did buy it again. Same product twice. It worked so well the first time I purchased it again. October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baluster Delivery This is a simple design baluster for a deck that I was remodeling at my house. The actual measurement is less than the original wood (2x2) on the deck due to the planning/sanding but looks a lot better without the rough cuts. November 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Free shipping was the best part Buying prepackaged balusters seemed like a good idea. The bundles came in a very heavy package delivered to my doorstep. The balusters were still wet (from pressure treating?). I opened the bundles and distributed them in my garage in order to get them to dry out. I rejected 14 of the 48 (three bundles) because they were too warped to use. I had to buy more balusters at my local Home Depot in order to have enough for my project. I hand selected the replacements at the store. They also were wet in the bundle and are currently drying in the garage. They are listed as 2x2 but actual dimensions are 1.25" x 1.25" x 42" nominal. The finish is rough and inconsistent. I will use them but, they are not what I expected. June 9, 2015
