Where would you normally use timber stair newel posts ?
As the post at the top of a staircase (see diagram to the right for more info) where balustrading for the top landing is required.
Join to an extension post get the desired overall length required.
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 : 880mm Height x 90mm Width x 90mm Depth
Length of top turning : 125mm
Length of top square : 300mm
Length of turning : 455mm
Pin : 70mm long x 38mm diameter
How should you finish it ?
As the finger-jointing is visible, we suggest that it should only be used for painting purposes.
If wanting to stain and lacquer, we suggest using the Oak version of the same post.
Speak to your local paint retailer for more info.
