    Good afternoon guys!

    I am a new member so please be patient with me! :LOL:

    I would like to know how I should go about putting a newel post on my staircase so I can put a hand rail and some spindles.

    I have uploaded some pictures in a album format. I've named it bottom of stairs.

    I would really appreciate the help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome but may I suggest for the best possible info you re-post this in the FLOORS,STAIRS and LOFTS section.

    Also, try to get the pictures posted in the topic (see the guide)

    Go into your album and click on each picture. Above it is a code to paste into your post that inserts the image. It mentions the word NET in square brackets:


    For example

    You could simply screw the newel to the base at the side , you will then need to increase the thickness of the edge to accommodate the base rail which holds the spindles.[A halving joint may be required which will allow you to get the post central to the edge of the stairs.]Really depends on the dimension of what you have.
