Half Posts




Previous | Table of Contents | Next



Half Posts are simply full Posts cut lengthwise.


Because of their flat backs, they are the professional, traditional way to terminate Balustrades and post top decorative trim against a wall. See photo below. Vintage Woodworks provides Half Posts (Porch or Newel) already split and ready to install.

Half Post
Half Posts (including Half Newel Posts) are available at each Post product listing in the Size dropdown. (Not available for the 5" Polyurethane Posts.)

The backs of all Half Posts should receive two or three coats of paint prior to installation. This includes Posts clad with synthetic materials such as AZEK or  Polyurethane if they have wooden cores. Likewise, the bottoms of all Posts should be painted.

When Half Posts are to be installed on an uneven wall surface, such as siding, brick, or stone, you should first install a plain 3/4" thick board that is about 1/2" to 1" wider overall than the Post. Spaces between this plain board and the wall surface should be caulked.



We are available by phone or email for free personalized consultation.
