Compact and strong, the 4240 Box Newel is crafted in the simple, yet impactful Craftsman style. Our experts at StairSupplies™ are committed to creating box newels that you will love, ensuring quality details and finishes. This 4” square, solid box newel features a small recessed channel near the top portion of the newel. If your stairway requires various sizes of newels, consider pairing the 4240 Box Newel with the slightly larger 4250 and 4260 Box Newels.

When installing your 4240 Box Newel, you will need the Sure-Tite Newel Fastening System. Follow our Sure-Tite Installation Guide to establish a sturdy and secure fit. The 4240 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 4240 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.
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 drop-down menu above.
- Overall: 4” x 4” x 54”
- Space between Cutout & Newel Top: 7”
- Solid Construction
- End Grain on 2 Sides
Clear Finish & Stain Information
StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For 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 StairSuppliesTM 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 StairSuppliesTM, 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.
