I need to construct a pedestal - help needed
I have an idea in mind and was hoping someone could help me figure a way to do it in an affordable method.
I'm designing a tablescape for a wedding. The floral centerpiece is a classic urn that needs to be high enough not to be in guests faces. This will require a riser of some sort.
Basic pedestals are too overpowering so I came up with an idea. Can someone tell me how to approach making my own pedestal?
Basically I need a 6 inch square post that is about 18 inches in height. I'm going to paint it white, trim it on the top and bottom with a molding and apply an applique to give it a classical look. The urn will sit on top. The urn is 10d x 14h with a base of 5 inches. I would love to taper the column/pedestal but I think that is more difficult to pull off.
I'm not a woodworker so I really don't know where to begin.
Hope someone can help with this idea.
