Classic Column Caps and Bases

Dress up entrances, landscapes, hearths, and pony walls with Classic Column, a cost-effective way to construct decorative columns or camouflage unattractive support posts.

Classic Column Tuscan-style ABS caps and bases with 6-, 8-, 10-, and 12-inch diameters match up with standard PVC sewer (SDR) or water (IPS) pipe. Both types of pipe are readily available at plumbing and waterworks supply houses and will create attractive columns at a cost that is 30 to 70 percent lower than other columns on the market.

Columns created with Classic Column caps and bases can be painted or decorated using faux finishing techniques to match your décor. For additional information about Classic Column Caps and Bases and painting tips, click here!

Note that hollow PVC pipe will not provide structural support, so columns created using Classic Column caps and bases are intended for decorative purposes only. Two applications are appropriate:

  1. To conceal a structural support post. Flexible thin-walled pipe needs only one lengthwise cut so it will fit around the post; thicker-walled pipe, e.g., schedule 40, needs two cuts to create two pipe halves to encircle a post. Professionally speaking, I would prefer to work with thicker-walled pipe. For assembly instructions, click here!
  2. To simply create a decorative column. If the column is not intended to dress up an existing support post, simply cut the pipe to the correct column length. For assembly instructions, click here!

Available in four different sizes to meet your project needs, cap and base sets include:

  • 1 cap
  • 1 base

Classic Column cap and base models are compatible with IPS (iron pipe size) PVC Pipe, available in lengths up to 20 feet. The SWR (sewer size) models are compatible with SDR (size dimensional ratio) 35 PVC pipe most often sold in 13-foot lengths.

Whatever your application—commercial or residential, interior or exterior—Classic Columns can make an attractive addition to your décor.

There is an automatic 35% restocking fee to return any Classic Column products!
