Er... probably not!

On the hunt for something to use as a pillar so I can make the master.

Pencils  ,and wrap a bit of card around each end to form the layers / rings,and finish off with a washer or two.
(I use them all the time just don't tell anyone  ;))

Realised (after I poured the silicone) that I've messed up the measurements of the pillar and it won't fit with the window frames...  bugger.  The bottom plinth is far too tall.

Ah well...  on with the next plan.  I found some 15mm dowelling today so I'm going to use that. 
The scrolly bit at the top is really tricky...

Seeing as the silicone is poured already I'll use them as the porch pillars.

Did you make them deliberately wrong so they’d fit the Greek temple I want you to build? :-)
