Box Staircase Newel: Splurge

The newel posts in Craftsman-style homes from the early 20th century were chunky and square, and built like a hollow box.

Nearly identical to one featured in the Universal Millwork Catalog of 1927, this Mission-style post features stile-and-rail construction with a true floating center panel.

Mission newel, 7½ by 53 inches, in red oak, about $700; Van Dyke's Restorers
