These twisted mahogany columns went to a customer on Catalina Island off the coast of California. They were to be part of a pool cabana and were designed to match the existing house columns. They are , in fact staved construction meaning that they are hollow and are composed of eight pieces. Once the eight pieces are glued up the column is a hollow octagon. The octagon is then turned round and finally the roping is milled.
