Product Description

Enjoy a piece of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in your own home with our 4110 ‘Extreme’ Box Newel. This box newel was specifically designed for one of the TV show’s home renovations, and offers several special features. At 4 ¾” square and 54” tall, this newel is precisely crafted to ensure clean lines and strong construction. The detailing of the two recessed squares and large recessed panel give the ‘Extreme’ Box Newel a high-end, craftsman-style presence. And when the material quality is as amazing as the craftsmanship, you can’t go wrong! Choose from a selection of our fine wood species and stains to complete your newel design.

To achieve the entire look from the “Extreme Home Makeover” project, consider pairing your ‘Extreme’ Box Newel with the ‘3109 Extreme’ Wood Balusters and 6100 ‘Extreme’ Handrail.

Mounting System

To install your 4110 ‘Extreme’ Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The ‘Extreme’ Box Newel may be installed either on the surface of the stair tread or beside the tread. Due to their precise edges, we have found that box newels look best on a square starting step.

Handrail Attachment

Join handrail to your 4110 ‘Extreme’ Box Newel using a rail bolt kit. Many configurations allow handrail to mount directly into the newel; however, if your handrail is joining with your box newel on a rake, you may also require a gooseneck handrail attachment.

Cap Attachment

The cap for this box newel is sent unattached to the newel body, allowing easy access for mounting handrail. Then, after handrails are attached, the cap can be secured on-site by applying a bit of wood glue and finishing nails for increased strength.

Splitting Box Newels

In order to maintain a consistent appearance when handrail must terminate into a wall, we offer Split Box Newels. Attach the partial newel to the wall, and your handrail can be secured like normal. If you would like your Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the dropdown menu above.

Clear Finish & Stain Information

StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For the Box Newels we offer both clear finishes and stains. Select a clear finish if you want to draw out the natural beauty and colors of the wood. If you prefer deeper, richer tones, our custom-mixed stains are the ideal choice for your Box Newels.

All of our stained and clear-finished Box Newels will be coated with Pre-Catalyzed Lacquer. Using the same quality product that cabinet makers require, this lacquer is designed to resist the natural oils from hands. We use this lacquer on all of our products that will be consistently touched, such as handrails, balusters, and newels. This layer of protection will keep your Box Newels looking smooth and stain free for years to come.

Wood Grain & Color Variation

At StairSupplies™ we believe that natural wood colors and visual textures add character to our products. With that in mind, we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural variation of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSupplies™, you acknowledge that you are receiving a uniquely crafted product and there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.

    Can Box Newels be slipped over 4×4 posts?

    4 years 6 months ago

    Hi Ted,

    Unfortunately, due to the wall thickness, this would not work. If you are looking for mounting solutions. We sell Box Newel Mounting Kits.
