Adding Post Brackets to round columns is easy as long as two issues are considered.

Arch Brackets have created a series of graceful arches.

CLOSE-UP
Typically, round columns have some sort of capital at their tops. The owners ordered Brackets with frames unattached and used only the top frame to install them. They cut the frames to an appropriate length to butt to the side of the capital. The curve in the Bracket's upper corners allowed their scrollwork to miss the slightly protruding capitals.

It is also possible to add balustrades to round columns. A jig saw is used to cut a curve in the end of each Rail that matches the curve of the column.



The owners wrote: "... our porch turned out great with the brackets we purchased from you, so I am providing before and after photos for you. We had to order the brackets without the frames attached and ended up using just the top frame to mount them. With the turned columns on our porch we just butted the side up as close as possible and it worked great!"
