Does this come for a 6 x 6 post?

Asked by Linda July 25, 2020
1
Answer

Linda, It does not seem that there is a flat finial base for a 6 x 6 post available at this time in stock. We suggest that you contact your preferred Home Depot store to inquire about a special order.

Are the finial and finial base smooth enough to use for indoor furniture. I would like to use the...

Asked by Bob September 28, 2019

Answers

Yes, but I used mine outdoors to top 4x4 treated fenceposts, and they were slightly undersized. Also, the holes were off-center, which wasn’t a big deal because the finials covered the new holes that I drilled.

When will this be back in stock?

Was the wood dried prior to making the cap

Asked by joe August 31, 2015

Answer

Joe, The raw lumber was dried at the lumber mill per regulations before being received by us. We then make the product, and it is pressure treated.

what is the ACTUAL size of the 4 x 4 finial base

Asked by Ausi August 17, 2014
4
Answers

They're 3.5" x 3.5" square -- and incidentally just about 1/16th of an inch smaller on all sides than the posts we'd purchased -- so useless as a way to shed water off the tops of the posts. Also, the pre-drilled finial holes were not on center, so likewise useless if you plan to use these as a base for a finial.

Be prepared, you will need to sand these extensively, and most will need wood filler to even out the divots and gaps left in the routed edges. They’re pretty messy, as though the tools used in shaping them were blunt or a novice cut them. Don’t expect to get what’s in the product image. Also don’t expect to get all 6 - I only received 5.
