Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jlo51 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.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Huck 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 2.0 out of 5.0 by AJHughes 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.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by leelee 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MJ53 OK product, did what I needed.
OK product, did what I needed to install stair railing fast in a rental condo, however the hemlock wood is very soft.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRod 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.
