I have replacement tapered columns for a porch restoration. They need cut to size at the bottom. How can I get a square cut for level installation when the column is tapered? I can't use a square to mark it accurately.

The easiest is to measure up from the existing bottom.. if it's 2" shorter set the tri-square @ 2" and use it to circle the column or make a quick jig if you are going beyond the foot.

You really should have play with the capital &/or Base sections...
