Adding the Trim

  1. Carefully measure and cut six pieces of3-l/2-inch-wide decorative trim (D) to fit around the top of the column. It is easier if you cut one piece at a time and give yourself a little extra length for cutting the miters. Standing the trim pieces (D) on edge, miter both ends of each piece. Set your saw to cut at 30 degrees, producing an angle of 60 degrees on the wood. These miters match the bevels in the column sides.
  2. Glue and nail the decorative trim pieces (D) on each side of the column, positioning the pieces so that the thicker edges are flush with the top (A). Use two 2-penny finishing nails to secure each of the trim pieces (D).
