4 x 4 Newel Post

The word “newel” originally referred to the central post that supports a spiral staircase. You’d see stone newels in medieval castles and Renaissance cathedrals. While newel posts still support spiral staircases, the word “newel” now also refers to the posts at the bottom and top of stairs as well as at either end of landings or balustrades.

Mr. Spindle makes 4 x 4 wood newels in a wide variety of designs in your choice of wood species (not all woods are available for all designs). The newel is the first part of a staircase anyone ascending or descending the stairs would notice. And if your staircase is outdoor leading up to a porch or a deck, the newels become that much more noticeable.

Our 4 x 4 newel posts are not just structural necessities; they are a design statement. Whether you’re looking for something classic and timeless or more modern and distinctive, Mr. Spindle provides options to match your aesthetic. Crafted with precision and care, these newels withstand both the test of time and the elements, ensuring your outdoor staircases remain beautiful and secure. The right newel post is the finishing touch for the overall look of your deck or porch.
