Newel posts are the upright supports for handrails at the bottom and top of a staircase. They can also be positioned along the length of rail and where staircases change direction. Newel posts have a primary purpose of structural support, though are typically decorative to varying degrees and can significantly accent the architectural style of a home and can be produced with a variety of milling options or from multiple wood species to make a bold statement.  Additionally, newel posts can be produced to complement handrail profiles.

Square or box newels are typically made with decorative moldings and are topped with a shaped or turned cap.  Newel posts can also be produced to cover a structural support.  Round newels are generally made from solid stock incorporating square sections at the bottom for mounting into the stairs and towards the top where the rail is attached.  Newel posts can range in diameter from 3 ½” to 10” and larger with lengths ranging from 48” to 60” depending on style, installation method and for correct proportion of staircase and handrail dimensions.

Species used for interior paint grade newels are often poplar or soft maple and stain grade newels can be whatever the customer desires to match treads or décor. Exterior newels are frequently done in cedar or mahogany for durability.
