Here is small (7×7×10H) plant pedestal for my wife’s desk at work. I think the flutes should have been a bit deeper especially when using this stone textured paint. This is what my wife wanted and she participated in the dimensions and overall design. This is my first time with fluting. It’s left-over pine beneath because I got laid off and can’t buy (much) wood.

I think the flutes look OK, and that’s a great paint job on it.

Great design and the flutes came out really good.
