I saw other projects and posts regarding newel posts so I thought I would include mine.

Between working other projects I am remodeling our carpeted stairway. Removed the carpeting on the first flight and replaced with a 5/8” thick replacement tread.

Next I wanted to build a nicer newel post to compliment the stairs. These are taken from a No Fuss Newel Post PDF to build a newel post box. Decided to make the inset white instead of oak.

I am working on a new banister top and then will finish the post and banister.

Sorry could only post 3 pics and then error out.

Great build on that great looking post, very well executed and totally matches the stairs and wall.

Have your say...
