Box Newels

Our box newels utilize four solid hardwood sides to create a hollow post with additional optional embellishments such as mouldings, panels and appliques.  They have been specifically designed in a variety of sizes and shapes so that you can select the best option to create a bold statement without overwhelming your balustrade or space.  They are hand crafted using old world techniques and are sure to withstand the test of time.
