Overview


Melton Classics Superior Wood Columns

Wood Columns are a specialty of Melton Classics. We carry on the old world tradition of manufacturing quality built wood columns crafted with the finest clear woods with superior quality. Our Melton Classics ClassicWood™ series of exterior wood columns are crafted with care from the finest rot resistant Western Red Cedar and Clear All Heart Redwood. These columns are further rot, weather and moisture protected during our multi-step finishing process. You can order our Interior wood columns for both paint or stain applications. Our “Stain” grade columns are built to the Architectural Woodworking Institute’s rigorous Custom Grade standards ensuring the finest quality.

Melton Classics Builds Quality Wood Columns

You will fins our wood columns are manufactured from the finest woods available and glued with Type I waterproof glue, and allowed to cure for more than 24 hours. The wood column shaft is then precision turned using our an accurate computer controlled lathe combined with the hands-on expertise of our woodworking artisans with decades of experience. Each exterior column shaft is coated throughout its entire length on the interior with what is called Asphaltum paint. This is an important step our competitors don’t do.

Our “paint” grade wood columns are hand sanded to a fine smooth finish, and coated then two coats of exterior primer are applied. After manufacturing, your wood columns are then carefully packaged in to protective crating for safest shipping possible.

Melton Columns Has An Almost Limitless Collection of Columns

Melton Classics can craft your wood columns in many designs including authentic classical designs from antiquity, contemporary, craftsman or from your own custom design. Our authentic Melton Classics ClassicWood™ series wood columns are classical columns designed in keeping with ‘The Orders of Architecture’ as recorded by the renowned Renaissance architect, Vignola. Every element of our classical wood columns, from the classical proportions and bowed entasis taper of the shaft, to the full depth fluting and carefully sculpted detail of every capital, is specifically designed to provide you with the beauty and authenticity of classical architectural wood columns. Our wood columns are available in round or square styles with entasis tapered or non-tapered shafts in a smooth or fluted shaft design. We also offer over a dozen classical and contemporary capital styles to enhance the beauty of your wood columns.
