A little post about a post.. well a faux post to be precise.
Recycled hardwood boards cut to required size, in this case 200 wide to create a 200x200 square posts.
Select faces that have a similar grain pattern as pairs and mitre along those paired up edges. Glue and clamp overnight.
Then I took to them with a grinder, sander and wire brush to meld the new edge and following the contours of the original faces. Finished post installed and you really can’t pick it👌 ...
