  Exact Duplication Process

 Option 1



 a CAD



  a) If you are a qualified architect or designer

      - supply us with CAD drawings - plan views / cross sections / elevations

      - For specific details in the Column

        Supply us with a separate detail drawing that shows depths, widths

        and heights of the detail. 

        Manufacturing cannot interpret an artistic rendering as a specific detail

        showing 3 dimensions.

        Indicate how deep, wide and high each detail is to be.

        If no drawing is available,  Manufacturing will assess the detail to the best

        of their ability as they are hand carved.

        simple sketches, photos, or renderings are not architectural drawings


 Option 2



 a CAD 



   b) If you cannot supply CAD drawings 

      - Plan views / cross sections / elevations / specific details in 3D
