I’ve been working on my 3D modeling and rendering and want to create some newel designs. OK the modeling is coming along but I have lots of work to do as for rendering. I’m having fun with the modeling at least. The image below is my shot at developing a tapered newel with the option of fluting. I like the simplicity of the design but am unsettled about how much taper to use – extreme taper or slight. Hope you like the colors.

These are of course over-the-post newels and require a newel cap that will match the handrail profile.
