Stone columns can give your home a wonderfully exotic and contemporary feel; their use in both interior & exterior settings provide a esthetic enhancement to any home.
Exterior columns are normally designed around a structural wood or steel post. They are designed with a diameter to balance the length required for the job. We call these types of columns “split and hollowed” because they are literally assembled around the post one half at a time. When they are made they are turned on a lathe and then center cored for the appropriate clearance you need for the post. Lastly they are cut into halves. If you desire a solid column this can be done as well although can not supply structural integrity values for building engineering requirements.
