Hi Gentry, thanks for the question. The newel post is 6-1/4 in. square on the bottom, and the face of the newel, below the cap, is 5 in. tall, and 4-3/4 in. wide. If you have additional questions, we'll reply as quickly as we can. Thank you!
Hi Mike, this newel has a similar style with a 4-3/4 in. square base. Search on Item #307322681 to find that particular newel post. If you have additional questions, we'll answer them as quickly as possible. Thank you.
Hi Cory, the caps of these newels are solid material, so that rail attaching hardware has something into which it can be secured. The middle section is partially hollow, and the bottom base is completely hollow, except for the newel installation block that is inserted into that space. For someone to customize this newel to accommodate wiring for a light switch would require a lot of modifications by someone with expertise. So we're not saying it can't be done! It will, though, require a lot of modifications to make it work. If you have additional questions, we'll reply as quickly as we can. Thank you!
Hi Sue, the only difference between this newel, and the 4091 newel, is the recessed panel feature on the 4093. The 4091 is simply a plain panel with no trim or decoration. If you have more questions, we'll be ready to answer them for you. Ask them here, or you may call our Customer Service Line at 678-455-5188 (M-F, 8-4 ET) where we can assist you with most any question you have. Thank you!
Hi Bob, these primed newels are designed to be painted, so they're perfect for doing just that. If you have additional questions, we'll be glad to answer them for you. Thank you.
Hi HomeRemodeler, these newels are made from a paint-grade poplar. If you have additional questions, we'll do our best to help you. Thank you for shopping The Home Depot.
Hi Jeannie, Unfortunately these newels are not available in the half-newel style. If you have additional questions, we'll do our best to help you. Thank you.
Vita, this newel post is solid from the top cap down to the base box, which is approximately 23-7/8". The base box is exactly that, a "box" that has a hollow core. However, this series of newels comes with an installation block that attaches to the floor, then the hollow box slides over that core after the newel is cut to size. Installation instructions are included with each newel. If you have any additional questions, please let us know and we'll be happy to help you. Thank you.
