making tapered columns?
I have a customer who would like to have tapered wooden (cedar) columns made for their porch.
Just wrapping the 4x4 post will suffice, but the tapered ones would be a nice touch.
Now I know there is lots of tapering jigs to make table legs.....but these columms will be larger than a table leg.
Approx height 7"
The existing support 4x4's needs to be wrapped with cedar with the taper starting out about 8" at the bottom and tapering thence to the top.
I don't want to freehand cut it with a circular saw and turn the tapers to rustic tapers.
Anybody done this?...know how to do this?...pictures of finished product?
I know the theory sounds easy, but being it is lots larger than a table leg, how do I do it?
