I am extremely pleased with the quality of the newels in both the construction, build, and the finish. Because of the nature of how these are built it requires multiple pieces of wood to complete. They are poplar so the color variances are all over and I have a great concern as to how they will stain. These were not meant to be painted. My stainer/ finisher has his work cut out for him.
Better than I even expected
They did a great job. Shipping was even faster than expected. Will use again in the future.
Good Product but was received damaged
The new newel and rails were made very nicely, nice product! but received damaged because they were not packaged robustly. Rails had nicks and on one 1/8 run damage. 2 newel trim molding was broke loose.
