Instructions for 3 + 1 Columns

1.  Measure height of finished post in field.

2.  If column needs to be cut to length, remove base and set aside.

3.  Notice that the column is glued together on 3 sides with one side loose. Separate loose side from glued sides.

4.  Cut column sides to desired length.

5.  First slide in the 3 pc. column section, then apply supplied glue in lock mitre joint from top to bottom while getting none on the face of column. Install clamps on column as needed (every 24”). Slide down the top cap, exposing pre-drilled holes, and install screws through column and into porch beam. Place drops of supplied glue every 2-3” on top cap, then slide into top plate and hold for 10-15 seconds.
