The widest part of the paddle is 4 1/4 inches and the narrowest part of the paddle and the straight balusters are 1 1/4 inches wide. The largest gap shown is 2 7/8 inch wide. Glad you like it!

Next question ... what material did you use. Is it made out of 1 x 6s or what dimension. Wood ... poplar? Thanks.
