Large White Oak Newels
These large white oak newels were made for a customer in Tennessee. I had a previous post for this particular job outlining the design process. See White Oak Reproduction Newel. The newels are shipping today – May 23 , 2016. Not shown in this post is the split newels that was also made. (the split newels will be attached to walls to join the handrail to. More often than not a simple oval or round rosette is used.)
The newels came out quite nice, I think, and should enhance the beauty of the stairway and home. They measure 7″ X 44″ and 7″ X 62″ high. The caps (four of the eight) shown below will fit the Walnut Creek Planing handrail 6710 and will be joined to the handrail fittings on site by the installers. See installing newel caps for the geometry of how to install newel caps.
Below is a rendering I made to match the image I received of the original newel
