American Made Primed Box Newels are handmade by our professional craftsmen and primed in our spray booth.
4891 Fluted Box Newel 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ x 60″
The box newel, box post or ranch style newel is a classic in the stair parts line. The 4891 is a fluted box newel made by routing into the face of the newel 3 vertical flutes.
This newel is an excellent complement to raised panel cabinetry and furniture. This is a very attractive newel for any stairway. 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.

Suitable for exterior stairs?
This box newel is not suitable for exterior conditions. If you purchased an unfinished White Oak newel and let us know that you intend to use it for exterior use, we could manufacture it with exterior glue.
