Solid newels are typically constructed from boards glued face to face. This means face grain is visible on two sides and edge grain is visible on the other two sides. Using miter lock corners (and decades of experience), we can now offer a solid newel with face grain on all four sides. The middle of the newel will be blocked with solid lumber to provide rigidity. This is a beautiful option to go with either a traditional baluster railing or a modern metal railing.

When installing your 4300 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 4300 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 4300 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.
- Overall: 4” x 4” x 42, 48, or 54”

- All Face Grain
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.
