Product Description

Let the 4691 Blended Box Newel be the centerpiece of your stairway. Expert craftsmen labor over the fine details of the 4691 box newel, ensuring the primed newel body is architecturally strong and the stain-grade shoulder trim is perfectly mitered. Consider pairing the 4691 Blended Box Newel with other Blended Box Newels that complement the design.

Key Features

  • Strong, Primed Body
  • Stain-Grade Shoulder Trim
  • Customizable Cap
  • Easy Install

Mounting System

To install your 4691 Blended Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The Blended 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.

Handrail Attachment

Join handrail to your 4691 Blended 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.

Cap 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 Blended Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the dropdown menu above.

Clear Finish & Stain Information

StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For the Box Newels we offer both clear finishes and stains for the stain-grade portions of the newel. 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.

Primed Finish

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

Wood Grain & Color Variation

At StairSupplies™ 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 StairSupplies™, 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.
