Fast Box Newel - Images 1-5

This carpenter-friendly design eliminates most of the nail holes.

Newel construction starts with four 2x2 oak balusters with one corner ripped out. Plywood panels are glued with PL400.

Plywood panels are pinned in place.

By using a plywood spacer while nailing the first panel to the second baluster, the author leaves room for the next perpendicular panel to slip snugly into place.
