I need some advice. I installed 2 6x6 turned newel posts when I rebuilt my front porch in 2001. Thought I was smart in buying pre-primed pine. Well, the bottom 3-4" are starting to rot since the porch is only 3" above ground level and exposed. I was going to just splice on some green treated but hay, what's that humongus lathe for anyway. Anyone turned redwood or ceder for this type of situation. Thought about trying green treated after I let it dry a few months and use enormous amount of dust collection but then was jolted into reality. Or maybe just glue up some pine, turn and prime/seal up real good and try again.
