CATEGORIES & HEADINGSdetails >>
Turning wooden columns since 1987, we are an essential resource for historic preservation and new period construction. Our true niche market can not be found as a stock item. Simply provide us with a drawing or a sample of your desired column or turning. The more information you can provide our craftsmen, the more accurate a replication will be.
We also offer standard profile Greek Doric, Tuscan, Roman Doric, Roman Doric w/Attic base, with or without fluting. Cast or carved capital standards include Greek & Roman Ionic, Scamozzi, Empire, Greek & Roman Corinthian and Composite. Whether Victorian Porch Posts, Newels, large Balusters, Rope Twists, Bellied Taper, Octagons, sketches can be provided upon request. We may even have some standard millwork offerings, see our Featured Products page for an entablature molding w/carved Bucranium (yes, thats an ox skull!) by the linear foot!!!
Many others make claims as to the authenticity of their architecturally correct designs. Much like the debate of Vignolian system vs. the Vitruvian abstract of propriety, the consumer is free to chose their own design solution.
We have the experience and expertise to complete your project on time, within budget. Cost saving tips:
Request a standard profile, even increment diameter
Cove detail (cincture) turned as separate part of base
Choose a lower cost material we suggest:
Spanish Cedar for exterior paint grade
Cypress for exterior stain grade
Poplar or Natural Ash for interior stain grade
