Classic newel posts are just that: classic in appearance and styling for that look that will never go out of style.
Classic Newel posts include the 4953, 4954, 4954F, 4955, 4955F, 4956, and 4956F.
Classic Newels have a turning design with deep ins and outs. They can be provided in a 3” or 3-1/2” form. The face, turning, and base become slightly thicker when the Newel is turned with a 3-1/2” blank post.
Regarding the standard 3” form: the thinnest portion (the first notch at the top of the turning) is 1-5/16” thick and the thickest portion (the face & base) is 3” thick. This is an overall variation of 1-11/16” – the largest variance of all types of Newels offered by Stair Parts Depot. It has a square base which is either 16” or 24” long depending on if the post is 48” or 56” in length. It comes in three forms: Ball Top, Pin Top, or Taper Top (mid-span post).
The face of the Ball Top Classic Newel Post can be 7” or 13” depending if the overall size of the post is 48” or 56”. The turning is 23” long, and the base can be either 14” or 22” depending on if the the post is 48” or 56” long. The Pin-Top and Taper-Top Classic Newels have a 24” turning with a 24” or 32” base depending on if the overall size of the post is 48” or 56” long.
The turning of the Classic Newel starts with a deeply-cut notch (1-5/16” thick). Right below the notch, it tapers slightly inwards for 3.5 inches, tapers outwards for 6.5 inches, and then back inwards for 4.25 inches. It then forms a notch that is 1-9/16” thick, which is a quarter inch thicker than the notch at the top. The last portion of the turning design is 6.75 inches long, and rests on top of the base. The length of the base ranges from 14″ to 24″ depending on which Classic Newel Post.
The set of balusters that match well with Classic Newels are 5906, 5907, 5908, 5909, and 5909F.
|4955 48″ / 56″||4954 48″ / 56″|
|The 4954 is designed for an over-the-post stair system. The Classic series sets forth an elegant arrangement of deeply cut curves with and overall smoothness and precision, and blends nicely with the 5908, or 5909 series baluster.||This is a post-to-post landing newel retaining a more traditional design as well, though with a longer top block (12“) and shorter turning (17“). This newel retains the Classic style, yet is designed for a post-to-post rail system.|
