How to create off plumb walls

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I am trying to create a couple of non- load carrying walls in a front poach area for decoration around a post to give the post a tapered look.. to go from 24" wide to bottom to 12" at top on one side, over 9-10'... any ideas of how to do this??

Truncated Pyramid. It won't give you framed walls, but Chief doesn't do battered walls, so you'll have to use some kind of work-around.

We could be more helpful if you could give us a visual.

 

Like Robert said, some type of solid will likely be the answer.

 

This shows a Truncated Pyramid with the center removed. Used to wrap around a corner.

You can also use molding polylines for this sort of work, such as with this custom tapered porch column:

Go to the library under millwork - columns.  There is a tapered one made already.

Yep. Unless you need something custom, which is when building it from moldings is useful.

Very simple to use the solid tool for this - very quick.
