These column bases were made to highlight the deck support posts that were on this patio. Rather than ignore the posts, we chose to make them into a design feature. The process began by creating custom handcrafted stone caps approximately a 1/3rd of the way up the column. These were done with a decorative edging and a textured top. They were made using a high performance mix that eliminated the need for joints or seams. The next step was to create the stone that would be the main focal point. The stone was hand carved and shape to mimic the look of a drystack ledgestone. The stones were then colored and stained to create the desired look. Since all of the stone work on these columns is handcrafted, we can manipulated and customize for a varying amount of different situations. We can do this for driveway piers, deck supports, railing piers, outdoor fire features, and seat walls just to name a few. The colors are limitless and sizes and shapes are able to be customized much easier and more reasonably than real stone.
