The Process for Historic Duplication of Columns

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Custom Full Column

 Reproduction

 

 Step 1:  Take digital photos of the column   

 

 Step 2:  Measure the components to be

                duplicated  

 

 Step 3:  Put all measurements on the photos or

               drawings

 

  

 Photo 1:

 Long shot of the column

 so we can see it from a distance

 Measure the total height including

 the Capital, Shaft & Base

 from Top to Bottom

 

     

 Photo 2:  Close up of the capital

 Measure the square capital

 Width, Depth & Height

 Measure the diameter of each

 round section and the heights

 Measure the distance between

 the rings

 

 

  Photo 3:  Close up of the base

  Measure the square base

  width, depth & height

  Measure the diameter of each

  round section & the heights

 

 

 

  Notes for Measuring:

  On a true circle (round parts) 

  The diameter is the width of the round circle (half the diameter is the radius)

  If you cannot measure the diameter - take a flexible tape or string and provide us

  with the circumference (the length of the perimeter of the circle) 

 

 

 

 

 

 Step 2: 

 Things

 we need

 to know

 

 

 Question 1:   How many columns do you need?

 

 Question 2:   What kind of wood do you want - Are they for inside or outside use?

                         click here for  wood properties   click here for wood properties

 

                           For exterior we suggest Western Red Cedar, Clear Pine, Douglas Fir, White Pine

 

 Question 3:   Do they carry load from above

                       If they do carry loads such as a support for a porch roof overhang, install

                       a pressure treated or metal post

                       to a secure base.   Let us know how big the supports are,

                       if they are round or square?

                       Order the new replacement column split to wrap your new supporting post

                       Always check with a structural engineer or qualified professional for load questions.
