I made these mantel columns for a friend a few years back. He was in the middle of renovating an old house. The fireplace is actually not functioning anymore. It was originally a coal burner. He probably put books or flowers in the fireplace to decorate.

The columns are 6 inches X 50 inches high and are salvaged cypress (very popular in our area). They are barley twisted left and right handed. FYI cypress is often salvaged from old house and warehouses in the South.
