Not to nitpick, Denny, but:

That ain't fluting, which has a concave profile. The above sort of profile gets called "bead" in wainscoting and such. Dunno about columspeak.

Hey Nano...perhaps you should contact google images and inform them of the oversite - or the person that originally posted the image on the web which in turn created the association of the word "fluting" with this image.

If you perform a google image search for "fluting" this is one of the images that appears in addition to the one that jsluder posted. Personally, I found Denny's pic to be more aesthetically pleasing. :wink: :P

You do it. I'm too tired. :wink:

Anyway, could be after all it's called fluting among column designers ("innie" and "outie", perhaps?); so far I've been unable to locate any hard-and-fast specifics of terminology in that regard. But I seem to recall that fluting is concave. :)

I'll put that on my "to-do" list....
...now where exactly did I put that note pad? :)

I'll leave the discussion of innies and outies to you guys. So, carry on. I'm going to go and look for recipes for Super Bowl "goodies". :party:

Okay, got it: the innies are "fluting", and the outies are "reeding". Both are called "gadrooning" (an unlovely name).

The possibilities now open to us for bad puns and musical symbolic devilry are too much for me to assay. I'll leave that to Denny or the Sludester or somebody.

Ya learn something new every day here at C&F, no?
