Square, Recessed Paneled Column
Square columns are a great alternative to the round columns which are more common. Square columns are hollow and so therefore not load bearing however they do give the illusion of bearing a great weight. All Elite Recessed Paneled Square Column kits come unassembled and can be installed with or without an existing support post, an existing wall, or may stand alone. These square columns are a perfect match to our Recessed Wall Paneled Wainscoting. A modern paneled look, characterized by its clean lines. It can stand on its own or it can be wrapped around an opening as a casing to give it a sense of elegance.
The column shaft is shipped unassembled so that it can be used to wrap a jack post, lolly post or an existing support. The base and cap are made from Poplar and are only suggested for indoor applications.
The kit includes: 4 - panels that make up the shaft of the column; 1 set of 4 dividers to be assembled on site (you may order additional) and 4 pieces of 3" Georgian crown to create a capital. The crown trim adds 4 ⅜" to the top portion. The Traditional Base trim is ⅝" x 5 1/4" high. A hardware kit, tape to help glue shaft together, glue and instructions. Everything you see in the drawing is cut to size.
The shaft is made up of four sides that go together like a puzzle, using lock mitre joints for easy assembly. All the smaller pieces are field installed.
