The two basic categories of balustrade systems are the over-the-post and
post-to-post system. An over-the-post newel system features a
"pin-top" style newel and uses handrail fittings to join the handrail
pieces together running over the newel post. The over-the-post system gives the
staircase a clean, uninterrupted look from top to bottom. The post-to-post
newel system features a newel post with a "block" top. In an
over-the-post newel system, there are smaller (usually 5" to 6")
block tops often called starting newels and larger block (10" to 13")
tops often called landing newels or transition newels. The landing newels, or
transition newels, allow the handrail to enter at one height and exit the newel
post at another height.
Our American hand-crafted
turned newel posts are beautiful pieces of furniture as well as functional
stair parts. Our team of skilled craftsmen spend as much time sanding our newel
posts as they do turning them. This means that there is little sanding for you
to do before finishing.
