A baluster (also known as a spindle or stair stick) is a moulded shaft, square or of lathe-turned form, one of various forms of spindle in woodwork. Standing on a unifying footing, and supporting the coping of a parapet or the handrail (banister) of a staircase. Multiplied in this way, they form a balustrade. Individually, a baluster shaft may describe the turned form taken by a brass or silver candlestick, an upright furniture support, or the stem of a brass chandelier, etc.
