This spiral column, made about 5 or 6 years ago, needed some maintenance. I took it down from our outside entrance to my wife’s Knit Shop and repainted it. I decided that the old medallion, scroll cut letter “B” was worse for wear, so I carved a new one with the CarveWright machine. The medallion is 4.5” in diameter.
It’s carved from red oak and finished with acrylic color and urethane top coat.
The other column, it’s opposite mate will get similar treatment.
You may notice that the spirals run opposite to one another on this column. The other column is a mirror image of this one.
