trimming base of post
i'm thinking about trimming my porch post bottoms to conceal a seam where i had to pad them to meet the floor.
question is, i don't want to just do the standard 1X with cove molding.
i've seen some really nice column base trim, but i just can't figure out what the components are.
one really nice one i saw looked like a 1X4 with something that looked like the bullnosed end of a stair tread on top of it, angled down. i've poured through the molding at the local lumber yards, can't find anything that looks like it.
i've seen similar trim all over the place on many different houses, but still can't figure it out.
i can't build this out too far because of limitations in deck overhang. essentially i can use a 1X around the post with something on top of it.
