These 5 1/2 inch poplar newels were designed by one of my customers. I really like the way these came out. The closer view below shows the rope pattern. They were probably painted in the end but many folks stain poplar as long as the stain has a little red in it to neutralize the green tint common to poplar. First image without the rope pattern.

And lastly- a close up of the rope pattern.
