Product Description

Fully painted, the 4626 Painted Chamfered Box Newel is carefully crafted and prepared by our team of box newel experts. The 4626 is detailed with gentle beveled edges, fitted shoulder trim, and various cap styles. This 5” square box newel offers the same effect as our larger box newels, making it a favorite for smaller houses, apartments, or spaces that must accommodate many newels. Use the 4626 on its own or pair it with a larger box newel, such as the 4994 Painted Chamfered Box Newel.

Mounting System

To install your 4626 Painted Chamfered Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. Box newels 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 4626 Painted Chamfered 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 Painted Chamfered Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the dropdown menu above.

What is the space between top molding and the cap… where handrail would be attached? Also, what is the dimension of the top molding— looks like more than an inch. Thanks

The area to receive the handrail is 5″ tall. The top moulding is 1 3/4″ tall.

One more question: If the bottom part is 5 inches by 5 inches, what is the dimension of the chamfered piece? Thanks,

The main section of the newel is 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, and it’s made out of solid material. While the bottom portion is a hollow box.
