Pictured below is a set of newels crafted for a customer in Tennessee. The larger red oak newels, from our N108 style, are over-the-post newels and require the caps pictured as well to top off the newels. The “caps” or newel caps connect to the handrail and/or handrail fitting to make a continuos rail line “over the post” hence the name. The red oak newels will be installed in the home’s main front stairway. The poplar 5 1/2″ newel will be installed in the rear of the home as a secondary staircase. These will be painted. You may notice that the style of the poplar newel post is similar to a bell on top another bell. We call these double bells. This style can be seen in many homes in the New Orleans area
