Shorten my columns

Can I shorten my column’s overall height?

Yes you can shorten your column by trimming the column shaft from the bottom. The bottom of tapered columns is the largest end. Many columns have a moulding around the top end of the column shaft. Do not trim this end of the column shaft. Trimming a tapered column may affect the fit of the base. Be sure to pre-fit the column base to the shaft prior to trimming it to length to ensure a proper fit. Some columns sit on the base, and others pass through the base. Be sure to check this before trimming your column to the required overall height.
