Our traditional 3" short face wood newel post is the most conventional method of starting a stairway. It makes the rail uncomplicated and easy to install. It is also the most popular and widely available stairway newel post in the market. It can be mounted on a stair tread, cap, landing or balcony. Along with being a stabilizing force, it can also add an ornamental element to the staircase. Its beautiful design provides a distinctive smooth and sleek appearance to the stair system.
