Attaching box newels is a somewhat easier task than attaching other newels because box newels are typically hollow. As such, by securing a solid block of wood to the floor, the box newel can be fastened by sliding it over the wood block and then fastened to it. See image below. This will not work for every box newel application, but should work for most.
