Wood Newel Posts

Exterior Wood Newel Posts provide an anchor for your railing system, adding beauty and strength. Use the 4″ Post for decks & small porches. The 6″ goes well on decks and porches, and is used either with the 4″ or 6″ Rail Systems. The 8″ & 12″ Raised Panel Newel Posts are especially beautiful, and go well with our 6″ Rail Systems and larger balusters (such as the 3 1/2″).

Our Exterior Wood Newel Posts are designed to be installed with our Newel Installation Hardware Kits, which leaves no fasteners showing.  These have been independently tested to meet and exceed the strength guidelines required by building codes, even in a worst-case scenario of 12′ long rails and a 42″ Top Rail Height.

The Newel Installation Kit is an ingenious design.  It has a plate that is bolted to the floor.  Next a threaded rod is screwed into the floor plate that runs up through the newel post.  Then a channel is fitted over the rod and down into a recessed milled in the top of each newel.  In that way, the whole post can be bolted from the top down.  With the addition of a post cap, you have a very strong newel post installation with no fasteners showing.

Our Raised Panel Newel Posts are also cleverly designed, right here in our shop.  They are made much like a kitchen cabinet door, but with “beefier” corner styles and a proprietary milling technique that allows all 4 sides to fit together perfectly as one post.  These newels add an extra level of beauty and detail to your wood porch balustrade. Most customers use them as a stand-alone structural post.  But because they have a large hollow center, they can be used as a decorative wrap around an existing structural member.  The 8″ Raised Panel Newel will easily fit over a 4×4 post, while the 12″ version will fit over a 6×6 or even an 8×8.
