Product Description

4993 Recessed Panel w/ Cove 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 4993 is a recessed panel box newel. It has applications in homes that have a mission, shaker or contemporary theme. The recessed or flat panel design w/ cove goes well with contemporary cabinetry. 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. These posts are made from red oak, maple, Brazilian cherry, hickory, American Cherry or other species of your choice. 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.

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.
