I need to replace some 8x8 porch columns with chamfered corners.
I thought I saw these being built on an episode but can't find it.
I looked into ripping 2x12 or 2x10 douglas fir and making my own columns, but from what I've read they will warp and twist as soon as I rip them and it sounds like a nightmare.
But I can't buy 8x8 anywhere, either. Home Depot sells one "8x8," it's 6" and change by 6" and change. Obviously that is not going to match the rest of the porch and I don't think the historical board would be too happy with home depot's definition of "8."
So... now what?
