The cradle will hold the angle, the band saw blade set at 90 will cut the 45.
Pretty hard to get a porch post up to a band saw.

@Semipro , the video is impressive, but for a porch post, do you think a rotary planer plus some files would do the trick? DRT has a point about how long it would take - for porch posts.

Wolfcraft in Germany have a “universal shaper” that might do the trick. I had one forty years ago, stupidly parted with it when I got my first router. For some things, it could not be beaten. The old model was also much better-built than the current one.

Art ask how the profile was made, This is 2 ideas on how to do it, I guess if he was going to mass produce two or 300 of them he needs to find a faster and better way of doing it but we just need to replace one post on his porch don’t think it’s a big deal
Just looking at the pictures I would bet that a Craftsman build them on job site.

Thanks one and all. The video helps and it looks like the best way to build the post is to build it in the shop and clad the 4x4 later. From the first video, it almost looks like the 45 degree bit made the whole thing. Before he started the finishing work the end on the right looked as if it had the little curve in it. I'll experiment and see what happens. I agree that it would be easier to remove the bulk with a saw so I'll try the band saw first since I'll be able to stop the blade cut exactly where I want it. I'm not sure when the post was built but it was a lot of years ago. I have seen two other houses with the identical posts so it was either a common practice or the same carpenter did all the porches. I think I'll shoot a question to the YouTuber he can probably offer some tips. I only have to build one of these sp time isn't an issue. In addition to the post, there is some trim on the top and bottom that I have to replicate.
