    • n newel In architecture, an upright cylinder or pillar which forms a center from which the steps of a winding stair radiate, and supports their inner ends from the bottom to the top. In stairs where the steps are merely pinned into the wall by their outer ends, and there is no central pillar, the staircase is said to have an open newel. The newel is sometimes continued through to the roof, so as to serve as a central shaft for receiving the ribs of the covering vault.
    • n newel In carpentry, the tall and more or less ornamental post at the head or foot of a stair, supporting a handrail.
    • n newel In engineering, a cylindrical pillar terminating the wing-wall of a bridge.
