These balusters are going to a historic preservation site – a nineteenth century court house near Dallas, TX.   I have not done much in yellow pine – sappy wood.  The “committee” wanted yellow pine because they believe it is what would have been used in this locale 150 years ago.  The pine was furnished by the good people at Bunkie Wood Products in Bunkie, LA.  It’s not easy to find three inch pine (the “committee” did not want laminated pine).  The balusters measure 2 1/2″ X 27″
