Where would you normally use a Gumnut treated baluster ?
As part of an exterior treated balustrade, perhaps on a balcony or verandah. (The baluster is the part between the top handrail and bottom rail).
What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been H3 treated (suitable for above ground use).
What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 930mm Height x 90mm Width x 19mm Depth
How should you finish it ?
A water based primer/undercoat is not a necessity (although it wouldn't hurt), but at least 2 coats of the final colour is a must.
Leaving it unfinished, oiling it or using a clear lacquer is not recommended.
