Wood Newel Posts
Wood newel posts are turned on a lathe from a hardwood square blank and then sanded smooth. All wood newel posts and wood balusters are available with the bottom square base block turned round.
Any of our wood newel post profiles can be made larger, up to 5-1/2″ wide, by custom order. Custom wood turnings, columns, and historical reproductions are available by quotation.
All our wood newel post products are proudly made in the USA.
Stair risers are 3/4″ thick and 7-1/2″ wide. Custom sizes are available in terms of thickness, width, and length.
Wood Stair Treads
Wood stair treads are offered in a standard 1-1/32″ finished thickness after surfacing and sanding. Extra thick hardwood stair treads for open rise staircases are available in any thickness. The most popular over sized wood tread sizes are 1-3/4″ and 2″ thick. We have produced treads as thick as 4″. Any stair tread thicker than 1-3/4″ will require face glue lamination(s) to meet the desired finished dimension.
Iron Balusters for stair railings are only available hollow tubular steel. The iron stair balusters market has been trending toward hollow for the last several years. There are a few reasons for this migration. The primary ones being: hollow stair baluster railings are less expensive; hollow stair baluster railings are cheaper to ship; hollow stair baluster railings are easier to cut. The strength of these hollow railings is not an issue. Tubular steel balusters are extremely strong.
Please make sure your iron baluster installation will pass code. Typically, 3 balusters per stair tread are required to meet the 4″ sphere spacing test which requires a 4″ sphere cannot pass through any part of the balustrade. Always consult your local building department.
