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.
Anything you frequently touch (handrail, newels, balusters) 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.
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.

what is the size of the opening on the 6.25 x6.25×60 hollow box newel?
Is the top section inside dimension of this newel 3-1/4 x 3-1/4? I would want the newel to slip over my existing newel whose top is 3″ x 3″?
Yes. the top box on this newel should be 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ square. You would want to make sure to add the additional 1/4″ of materiel around the existing post so that it’s a snug fit. In addition, you might need to cut a portion of the newel off to get to the desired height.
