A: Hi Alpha, you have about 2.5inches before the taper is effected!
A: Hi James, the largest size we have for this Baluster is going to be 41inches. Please take a look at model # 5015X-041-HD00L to see if that will work for your project!
A: WColinJudge - this product was manufactured in China.
A: Hi ASRG, that's a great question, so thanks for asking it.The pins on the bottom are not removable and would be removed if you cut them as you describe. The work-around is to buy a package of loose dowel pins (ex: item #10055760) and drilling your own holes. It's the same concept as having the pin on the bottom in the first place. If you have additional questions, we'll reply as quickly as we can, or you can call our Customer Care Team at 678-45-5188 (M-F 8am-4pm ET) and we can answer your questions directly. Thank you!
A: No, the dowel is part of the entire turning.
