Seattle Job: Create 9 octagonal finials

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone in the Seattle area that would be willing to be paid to create 9 octagonal finials?


They are approx 7" x 7" x 7"


I've included a picture of the original (very rough looking), and a rough contour outline.

The contour (in white) is a solid piece of laminated wood, and the grey piece is trim attached to the outside.

(Note the 'top' shown in the picture and not the contour is a separate piece.)


I attempted to cut this on the band saw but my 14" band saw doesn't have the cutting depth.


With patience this is do-able, but requires a 16" band saw or 14" with a riser.


I'd charge $100/ea


I'd also build it with 2x8 cedar lumber which is $50 for a 6' board, but softer than Southern Yellow Pine and would have better longevity.


I'm asking for someone, so if you're interested, I will show you what I've learned and will connect you with them (they are pre-internet).
