The Newel Caps pictured below will top the N108 also pictured below. The set of newels went to a customer in the Chicago area. He wanted something with a little extra on top the newels. I’ve only done this once before, I think. So the newel cap is cut with a pie shape cut (birds mouth) and attached to the handrail fitting and or handrail. See Newel cap installation for more information on doing this. The ball is then attached after installation with a pre drilled 3/4″ hole for a 3/4″ dowel.
