Culpeper Wood Preservers manufactures laminated timber columns that offer an alternative to solid timber, fiberglass, and aluminum structural columns. The columns are made from treated southern-pine components joined with waterproof resorcinol adhesive. According to Culpeper, the columns are lighter and easier to handle than solid PT posts and are less likely to twist. They are available in cross sections from 4x4 to 12x12 and in two styles of turned post in 5- and 6-inch sizes. Contact a local distributor for pricing.
