newel fixing to stair landing


hi all, i need to fix a newel post to an exsisting landing. the newel finishes short and i want to be able to continue the newel post up to be able to fix handrail and spindles. i know i cant take the exsisting post out , but just need to be able to fix the new one securely. any help on this matter will be appreciated

i have no picture. but there is a false wall there at the moment , that is coming down and being replaced with the newel and handrail and spindles. imagine a landing with nothing there only the floor. i was thinking of housing out the newel post to fit around the floor and then it will sit on the top tread, fixing it to the floor joist. ( im not very good at explaining myself ) sorry that i had no picture

cheers joanna

what is the landing made of? they make all sorts of post mounts that will work for you.

It's not very clear what you need or want... just google newel fastener. LJ Smith has a pretty good site.

This would be much easier if you took a picture, unloaded to a free hosting site, and posted the link here.

even easier is hit the 'post reply'/manage attachments/choose/upload/type your response and submit. offsite links don't work sometimes...
