Fluted Columns

Brian McKearney
>I'm considering making a set of table lamps and the design that I had in mind is a simple column with routed coves running the length of the column (maybe 8 coves in all). I was considering building a frame that I could clamp to the bed of my lathe that would extend above the turned column - I was considering using this as a base that I could let my router (PC690) ride along. Does anyone have any recommendations for routing these coves, or perhaps know of a web site that describes methods and/or jigs?
