Where would you normally use timber stair newel posts ?
To structurally support the end of a balustrade on a staircase.
What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been finger-jointed and laminated for added strength.
What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 1500mm Height x 115mm Width x 115mm Depth
Recess : All four sides of the post have a recess to take either the Flat or Pyramid LONG drop-in panel. It does NOT suit the MEDIUM or SHORT versions of the drop-in panels.
How should you finish it ?
If looking for a natural finish, then a clear lacquer will be fine; or you can use a stain to achieve your desired colour then use a clear lacquer to finish it off.
If wanting to paint, a water based primer/undercoat is not a necessity (although it would not hurt), but at least 2 coats of the final colour is a must.
Speak to your local paint retailer for more info.
