Project Information

Tell Me What you Think I would Really would like to Know

There are 5 of them. Plus the Ceader Foe Beam scarfed, construction adhesive, and hand nailed.

These are the templates I made from 1/8" hardboard, roughed the blanks out, then I just pattern cut them on the table saw

Column Corner Miters are glued and nailed with Titebond 3


All End Grains top and Bottom are sealed with silicone adhesive caulk.


You guys have any questions comments?

One of my favorite styles! Looks like you pulled it off nicely. I take it this was a remodel? If so, it would be fun to see the "Before" picture.

Wouldi, I love the craftsman style and your work is very tight. The only thing that bothers me a little is the plywood inserts, these would be great if they were going to be painted. When staining I think a more traditional choice would be real boards, no??? Pat

This is very nice. Did you do the rock work as well? Did you use pine, cedar, or something else. Some other pics of the house would be great. It looks like a nice place to relax.

Wouldi, the posts look great. Before be moved we were looking to do the same to our house. I was looking at different proportions for the the taper. did you do what looked good to you or is there a "Craftsman" standard for the taper? Did you do the masonry work? Again the posts look great.

Pat, I agree but in this case the budget didn't allow. Dan, I do remember possibly reading something about that "craftsman standard", but no I ended up making a full size template of the rock, the top rock cap, and the whole profile of the column, before building anything. I did everything but lay the cultured stone in the field. Install was made easy by making them in 2 pieces I was able to just "set" the columns, string them straight, cut blocks and fasten. HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY, the updated pics

Nicely done! I like the way the grain on the panels matches the stone layering. Thanks for posting!

Very neat. On the first pic (from under the verandah) - it looks really well integrated with the style of the house. I think to enhance it you need some craftsman style window finishings on the outside. It will totally pop.

They look great! Perhaps making the plywood grain vertical is the only change i would have suggested. Nice job on the proportions.

I really would love more info on how to build these because I need to build 5 for a house we are planning to buy. Do you have a supply list by chance? I want to do mine in cedar! Your skill and craftsmanship is so good!!
