The word “newel” originally referred to the central post that supports a spiral staircase. You’d see stone newels in medieval castles and renaissance cathedrals. While newel posts still support spiral staircases, the word “newel” now also refers to the posts at the bottom and top of stairs as well as at either end of landings or balustrades.
Mr. Spindle makes 4 x 4 wood newels in a wide variety of designs in your choice of wood species (not all woods are available for all designs). The newel is the first part of a staircase anyone ascending or descending the stairs would notice. And if your staircase is outdoor leading up to a porch or a deck, the newels become that much more noticeable.
Contact Mr. Spindle with your questions about the 4 x 4 wood newels we supply. We’ll be happy to help!
