92" Antique Wood Round Tapered Structural Column
_Strong, antique, porch column salvaged from Northeastern, PA. It's made of a hardwood and is painted a silver color. The column was designed with a central bulge and is wider in the middle than at the top or bottom.
The rim around the bottom, which once sat on a base is broken and chipped. We could remove whatever is left of it to give you a clean, smooth top, as well as make any other repairs or modifications. If you're interested, email us with a description of what you'd like done to the column and we'll give you a price.
The column is strong, sturdy, and in great shape considering it's age. There nicks, scrapes, and scratches from top to bottom, which will be removed during sanding, and whatever remains could be filled with putty or left as "character marks." Once painted, it will look as good as new! There are no serious, structural flaws like big breaks, deep cracks, rot, termite damage, or warp.
Considering that the wood used to make this column was sourced from a tree that lived hundreds of years before being cut down; it's much harder/denser and is less prone to rot, warp, insects, and even fire than any column made today. Today's columns are made wood sourced from trees that are barely 20 years old. The wood hasn't matured long enough, and the new column will need to be replaced sooner than this old one--they don't make them like they used to!
