Tuscan Columns

The most simple and stout of the classic Roman orders, Tuscan columns are utilitarian by nature and suggest strength and stability. Traditionally, Tuscan columns are smooth and average a 7 to 1 ratio (height to shaft diameter at the base). It is not uncommon for all Tuscan column details to be round including the abacus (top of the capital) and plinth (bottom of the base).

Pagliacco Tuscan Columns

Our tapered Tuscan columns feature true Roman entasis in which the shaft is straight (no taper) for one third of its length and then tapers in decreasing radius as in the bending of a bow. We make the abacus and plinth square unless otherwise specified. Pagliacco Tuscan columns are available round or square, tapered or no taper, fluted or smooth, in a variety of wood species or synthetics, such as fiberglass reinforced polymer, spun fiberglass and DuraStone™. We also offer splitting for any application. Exterior columns are made from Western Red Cedar, Redwood or fiberglass, but they're also available in the wood of your choice. Paint grade interior columns usually are made of Poplar, Pine or fiberglass. For stain grade interior columns, we use the hardwood of your choice. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to find the best product available for you application and budget.

Because we offer a variety of Tuscan columns not all product dimensions match the following chart. If a specific dimension is critical for your application, please ask to confirm sizes.
