I would like to use these as legs for a farmhouse table project cut down to the height I need. Will they hold weight? This will be a very large and heavy table. Thank you.
Asked by: KVK
Did you end up using these for a table? I had the same plan but wanted to know how it worked for you.

this shows pressure treated but wondered if the appearance is natural ?

Asked by: neo
They look mostly natural with a very light green tint... But you will likely want to paint them anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty nice posts... Good quality... Price seems high until you compare. They are laminated posts and turned nicely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These posts turned and twisted after placed This was a nice looking post to start. After installed we had to wait about 3 weeks before we could install the handrails. during that time, under very fair weather conditions, the top square twisted about 5 degrees on top of itself, making it completely unusable. Someone authoritative told me it was because of the "treatment" on the posts. We then had to rip them out )lots of work) and replaced with redwood posts. Will be returning these ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thinking outside the box on this one... I am building a gazebo and wanted a nice turned post. I could not find any 8 footers, but I bought these and put them on top of a 4x6 post base. I installed them "upside down" so I could put in the cross bracing. The quality is pretty good. They are a little knotty, but I am painting them, so it's not that big of a deal. I also purchased this companies 2x2 spindles for the same project, These really filled a need for far less money than other products I had found.
