To install your 4993 Blended Recessed Panel with Cove Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The Blended Recessed Panel with Cove 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.
Join handrail to your 4993 Blended Recessed Panel with Cove 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.
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 Recessed Panel with Cove 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.
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.

Can these posts be ordered to a custom height or cut down to the desired height?
Thanks for the question. The 4993 Blended Recessed Panel w/ Cove Box Newel comes at 60″ tall and can be cut down from the bottom to your desired height. I would recommend locking it into a table saw to make sure the cut is completely straight.
