Baluster

"A baluster is a vertical moulded shaft, square, or lathe-turned form found in stairways, parapets, and other architectural features. In furniture construction it is known as a spindle. Common materials used in its construction are wood, stone, and less frequently metal and ceramic. A group of balusters supporting handrail, coping, or ornamental detail are known as a balustrade.

The term baluster shaft is used to describe forms such as a candlestick, upright furniture support, and the stem of a brass chandelier.[citation needed]

The term banister (also bannister) refers to the system of balusters and handrail of a stairway. It may be used to include its supporting structures, such as a supporting newel post." - (en.wikipedia.org 17.02.2020)
