Modular Assembly

Box-style newels (and the railings to which they were attached) were molded in segments—the finial or cap, side panels, and collar. The "ready to assemble" unit would be shipped in parts and joined on site with the use of bolts, screws, and bars. Any seams, screws, and bolt heads were then painted over, sealing out water and giving the newels the appearance of a single, solid unit.
