New Twisted Newel
So this a New Twisted Newel design I’ve been entertaining for production. An acquaintance brought a walnut 3 1/2″ wide version of this newel a number of years ago. It’s been sitting around my shop for all those years. Someone recently asked about it at which time it caught my eye again. I proceeded to make a drawing and rendering of two different widths of the same newel. Pictured below is the 3 1/2″ walnut original and a 5 1/2″ rendered version. This classic design has the squared details at the base and 1/3 up from the base. It also sports a 4 “start” 1/2″ radius bead that twists around. This is an over-the-post newel and will require a cap made to match whatever handrail the customer is using.
