5 1/2″ X 48″ post-to-post newel. Pictured below is both the Tall Texan newel and the Texan. The Tall Texan is obviously the post-to-post newel. The Texan is the over-the-post newel. If you have read the product description of the Texan you know that the original design was based on a smaller newel that the home owner had a desire for but in a larger version than the 3 1/2″ wide design offered by the stair manufacturer. The Tall Texan newel profile was added to compliment the over-the post Texan. It has been very popular over the years.
