Specifications

Traditional turned or square Cedar Newel Post provides the strength and support for your porch balustrade.  These cedar newel post designs match our stock spindle designs and create a beautiful flow-through effect when installed.

Actual Width: 5 3/8″.  Specify length.  We recommend ordering newels 4″ taller than your top rail height.  For example, if you have a 36″ top rail height, you’ll want to order a 40″ newel.

Made of 4 pieces of cedar, boxed together, and has a 2 1/2″ hollow center.  This design prevents checking or cracking, and allows for the use of our Newel Installation Kit.  It also eliminates the need for trim to cover up fasteners.

The Newel Installation Kit uses a plate bolted to the floor and a threaded rod that runs up through the newel.  The newel is attached from the top-down with a steel channel (included in the Installation Kit).

PRIMING OPTION (recommended): Premium oil-based primer in flat white available as an option, which allows for immediate installation.  Expect some blemishes in the primer from shipping.  This is normal and will not affect the finished result when painted after installation.

Materials

Our woodwork is stronger and longer lasting than woodwork produced by others.  Why?  Because we use better material

Port Orford Cedar (called White Cedar in some localles) is highly resistant to decay, is stronger and more dense than all other cedars, and machines to a smoother finish. In fact, it is 45% stronger, denser, and harder than all other cedars, redwood, and pine. Also it is a creamy white color which allows for limitless options on staining, and the color will not bleed through paint as sometimes happens with darker woods.  All this means products made from Port Orford Cedar will simply look better in the decades to come.

Grades used: We use both CLEAR and SELECT TIGHT KNOT grades of wood in our products.  When Select Tight Knot is used, only the best pieces are used of that grade.  Because of the nature of our products, we can often “cut around” the knots, so even our STK products often end up clear.
