I was asked to build seven columns for a local community theater production of Julius Caesar. They are 13 feet tall, octagonal, and fluted on all sides. I used the bird’s beak method to create the angles of the staves. I think they came together very well, much better than I thought 12 foot pine boards would. All loaded up and now ready for paint and turning to marble. Glad to have this large project finished.
Finally got a pic of the final set. Note I also built the three sections of 4 foot wide stairs in the center. And everything rolls on casters for repositioning throughout the show.
