Product Description

Blended box newels feature a white painted box newel body with stain grade trim accents. The blended box newels are an attractive addition to homes with painted trim and painted balusters. The wood type selected above is the type of wood for the stain grade trim. If you select pre-finished then the trim will be pre-finished with our commercial clear coat. The body of the box newels is made from poplar or soft-maple and is ready to be painted or can be used with white provided.

The 4620 is 5″ square box newel as a complement to the larger box newel.

This is a very attractive newel for any stairway. The small box newel is perfect for stairways with lots of newels. It is especially useful on landings and at the second floor. This product is a favorite for smaller houses, apartments and places that do not want the crowding that comes with larger box newels. This unit is easy to install for professional stair builders or for those who want to DIY. Whether your stairway goes one flight of stairs or more the box newel fits on the stair tread or beside a tread. We do not recommend curved starting steps for box newels. We prefer the look of a square starting step. With a box newel, handrail attaches to the side of the newel with a rail bolt or other stair hardware. Railings coming into a fluted box newel on the rake should be combined with a gooseneck. Call to see if the product you need is hollow or solid for the easiest mounting option for your application. The box newel creates the strongest wooden stair system possible when combined with a larger handrail. We recommend installation of box newels with our Box Newel Mounting Kit for a strong and reliable staircase.

Box Newels can be split for a charge of $35.00.

Clear Finish & Stain Information:

StairSuppliesTM offers premium finish options, we select different products depending on the application (read more about our stain & finish selection). Whether you want a clear finish to draw out and protect the natural color of the wood, of you prefer a custom mixed stain to give your stair parts a more unique rich color, we have the expertise to give you the look you want. Blended Box Newels are finished with two different finishes:

Anything on the newel that is not primed, is finished with a pre-catalyzed lacquer. This type of finish is frequently used by kitchen cabinet builders because it’s designed to be more resistant to the natural oils that are on everyone’s skin. This means that the finish will remain consistent and give a beautiful look for a long time.

The primed portions of the newel are primed with a white vinyl primer. These parts come ready for a quick light sanding, and then can be painted in the specific color of your choice.

Wood Grain & Color Variation

At StairSuppliesTM we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural character 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 there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.

Is the lower base box section shipped loose from the solid upper section so that the overall length of the newel can be adjusted during installation? Or is my only option to trim the length from the bottom of the base?

Hi Phil,

The base and the top portions of the newel are attached. If you need a special height, you can call in with your request and we may be able to help you out. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Would it be possible to get a dimensioned drawing of this newel so that I can calculate the exact length of the upper and lower section that I would need to fit my stairs? I understand the need to have the eight inches of the upper section fit into the lower box for strength. I would also need the length of your mounting block so that it will all fit together. Thank you.
