Could this be cut shorter

Asked by: Cj17
Howdy Cj17, Since this is wooden, of course you can cut it. However, be sure you have correct measurements. Happy Cutting, Coach Dave

What does the top look like? Is it flat, is it pointed or rounded? Better photo needed showing top.

Axxys Hemlock Box Newel is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chipped and dinged I bought this item online and had it shipped to the house, on arrival I was disappointed to see either in transit or in store it had received some pretty rough treatment. It was chipped and dinged up with an area where you could see a strap had been tightened around it.... over all it was what I wanted, I just was not happy with how poorly it was handled

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The workmanship could have been better Some of the pieces were attached unevenly and there was a chip in the base of one newell. The quality of the wood doesn't seem very good compared to oak or poplar. Would definitely go for the poplar variety next time. However once it was sanded again and stained it will work for our needs. Had to reglue some parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed. Inadequately packaged by manufacturer. (No reflection on Home Depot.) All three ordered came damaged. Poorly made. Glue & staples. Will need additional sanding before staining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Axxys newel review We like our recent purchase of these Newels. The wood has lots of character and stains nicely. We did have to re order after the first shipment as two of them were badly damaged. We asked that they be packaged better the second time around, and those posts were both unharmed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to Return Though the product had demensions, it was much larger than where we needed it to be used at. The post looks no different than what you can buy in store so, just a heads up on that. Think Axxys could offer more design/size options if they want to sell a post with their railing systems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from newell posts Contractor made a mistake with the first ones I bought, so I was grateful for the free shipping. Very nice looking and promised quickly... due to come in 3 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for a great price Some people don't like Hemlock, it is a softer wood, but as long as you know that going in, you cannot beat the price for this newel. Great quality too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very soft, plan on covering it Extremely soft wood and It came damaged but we were up against permit timelines and could not wait for something better or exchange. We fixed it by leaving the broken trim off and box framed it with oak to cover the damage and protect it for actual use. It will withstand little, unless you want to completely cover it anyway.
