Welcome to the forum, N/a.

Are these round or square columns? Are the columns rough cut logs or finished ?

This recent post may give you some ideas.

You seem to have two posts n/a, as I said if you make the device correctly then you can do both operations on it, turn the columns and flute them. And there will be a benefit, that is that all the columns will be exactly the same. n

I intend to glue up a series of flat boards beveled on edges to form a hollow column 10-12 inchs in dia. then flute the flats with this jig. Have done small ones before. Bevel angle must be precise for close joint on proper diameter round column.
