Question

Building column wrap with manufactured stone; need advice!.


I want to build column wraps out of wood and manufactured stone to transform my front porch posts from something like this:




Into something like this:



Looking for lessons learned, tips, tricks and insights. I'm handy with wood and tile, and I understand the framing and tiling aspects of the job. But I've never done any exterior construction and am intimidated by waterproofing, drainage, and ventilation.

I appreciate any advice!

Just saw a job on a shopping center that was being renovated,and they used a concrete backer board for the portion that was stone veneered,and clad with cedar for the top just as the after pic looks.
