If this style of box newel looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw it on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”! The 4110 Primed ‘Extreme’ Box Newel was specifically designed for one of the TV show’s home renovations, and offers several special features. The detailing of the two recessed squares and large recessed panel give the ‘Extreme’ Box Newel a high-end, craftsman-style presence. At 4 ¾” square and 54” tall, this newel is precisely crafted to ensure clean lines and strong construction. Fully primed, simply paint your 4110 ‘Extreme’ Box Newel in a shade suitable for your home and enjoy it for years to come.

To install your 4110 Primed ‘Extreme’ Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The Primed ‘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.
Join handrail to your 4110 Primed ‘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.
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.

These primed newels are painted with a white vinyl primer. Give the primed sections a quick, light sanding, and they can be painted to match your home.
