I had a local cabinet company that wanted me to make them 58”L. columns to match the ones that they bought from their suppler who couldn’t make the longer ones. Well, this worked to in my favor because I still needed to finish off our kitchen island ends and this was a good solution. This project took jigs to accomplish.

I just love the challenge of making a jig that really works.

This shows the columns with one end finished. I had to carve the curved part of the column.

I had to fur out the cabinet because it used ti sit up against the wall.

Like the step-by-step process w/pictures Rog. Did you finish the project after you installed the panel on the cabinets over carpet? If so Rog, you are very, very brave. As always a beautiful piece of woodworking art.

The panels were finished off and then attached. I’m no fool! LOL.

That’s awesome! I’m doing some work in my theatre upcoming and that little tidbit of a howto really gives some great ideas. Thanks!

I also enjoyed the step-by-step explanation and the photos. Very satisfying when a jig(s) solves a design / construction problem. Great job Rog!

Nice work….sometimes I think figuring out the jig is more fun than making the piece.

I’ll agree with you CarverRog, sometimes the part I like the best about woodworking is figuring out just how to do a specific task in an effective, efficient manner.
