Newel Post

One of the best things about my job is that I get to see and work on some really amazing furniture.

Unlike the mass produced newel posts we so frequently see this one is a beauty.  Newel posts typically are found at the bottom of a stairway and are used to support the handrail.

Fun fact:  the newel post at the base of the stairway in the 1946 classic film “It’s a Wonderful Life” is the same as the one used in 1989 for “Christmas Vacation”.
