This column can accommodate up to a 5" diameter post or support.
Although most columns designs are derived from the ancient Romans and Greeks with a pronounced taper, the latest order to be introduced to architecture is the non-tapered column. Our Round Non-Tapered Wood Columns can be used for either structural or decorative.
One feature about Round Non-Tapered Columns is that they do not have neck moulding and as a result, can be cut to any size you like. Unlike it's tapered counterpart, the cap and base will fit regardless of where the stem is cut. In keeping with contemporary architecture, most non-tapered columns are not fluted. Should your require fluted columns for your project, give us a call, being the manufacturer, we can customize for you.
As an option, this column may be split, these are the options:
As a standard, the column comes "Full Round" – with no splitting. The shaft and capital and base (round torus and square plinth) will be full as shown.
Split Round – Columns meant to wrap an existing post will be split round. The shaft and capital/base (round torus and square plinth) will be split alike (diagonal cut – corner to corner). The maximum inside diameter is 5”.
Half Round – Columns meant to act as pilasters will need to be split half round. The shaft and capital/base (round torus and square plinth) will be split alike (horizontal cut – side to side).
Three Quarter Round – Columns applied to an outside corner of a wall will need to be split three quarter round (a quarter of the column will be cut off but still supplied). The shaft and capital/base (torus and plinth) will be split alike.
Quarter Round – Columns applied to an inside corner of a wall will need to be split quarter round (the column will be cut into 4 equal sections). The shaft and capital/base (torus and plinth) will be split alike.
