Turned newel posts feature a ornamental section carved from a lathe in the middle. Turned newels are smaller than the box style newel, and accommodate either a continuous rail or rail to post type stair. Posts to posts have a decorative finial on the top of the post, and the handrail attaches to the top square section of the newel post. The attachment is usually done with rail bolts. The pin top style newels are for continuous rail, which use handrail fittings to continue the rail throughout the staircase. The newels attach to the flooring or framing of the stair, again, thru lag bolts, j bolts or several other types of hardware. Box newels usually have a larger footprint than turned newels, but we do offer some styles in a larger base, which is 4.25 inch newels and larger.
All newels are made in the USA. We can hand turn any type of newel and reproduce them as well. We run a 4-axis CNC lathe, source local custom turnings thru a 30+ year wood turning shop in Missouri, as well as distribute some styles as well. We can accommodate any request, large or small.
