The post is solid but not a single piece of wood correct? I’m assuming it is laminated

Hello, Marian. Thank you for your question. The 4004 newel would typically be made of 4-5 widths of lumber glue-jointed to form a solid newel post.

Is this post exactly 4″ x 4″ or is it smaller. We are looking to use them for island legs.
Thank you

we would use this as an outdoor trellis with climbing plants to screen out several A/C units. Since we are using in ground posts and one foot spacing what size holes would we need to drill in the end posts to receive the tensioning hardware?

Hi Harold,

If you intend to use our Wood Level Tension Kits for cable railing, you’ll need to drill 1/2″ holes through your 4″ newel posts. If you have additional questions about installation, please give our team a call at 1 (866) 226-6536.
