Masonic fittings

I have been searching for a supplier of masonic fittings to go on to custom woodwork, can anybody point me in the right direction for these items

I have attached pictures of two tops of Wardens columns as an example

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you for your two suggestions and I have looked through the results but with no luck

I have previously trawled the internet but cannot even find a reference to masonic fittings of the type I require so I was hoping someone out there simply knew of a supplier

Dumb question.....
Have ya checked with someone associated with the Masons? Local Masonic Temple or national headquarters?

Thank you for the suggestion but the Masonic Supply shop only supplies complete items and as a woodworker it would not take much effort to make the wooden part of the columns

You will note that the price is 484.24 for a pair of columns in a box which I think is very expensive but not unusual

If I could find a supplier for the top part of the columns then it might make the price a little more palatable but thank you for your time

Hi Bill

I am a Freemason in the UK and yes I have checked everywhere I can possibly think of, I can buy completed items but I really want to make some myself just to keep the cost down for my Lodge and possibly other Lodges if things work out well

I don't know how things work in the U.K., but in the U.S., you would probably run into copyright and licensing issues.

These items have been used in Masonic Lodges for over a hundred years and any issue with copyright or licencing have long past. Grand Lodge in the UK does not have any copyright or licencing deals with items of Masonic furniture like this as far as I know. Items like this can be bought from shops all over the world so I would not think there are any kind of restrictions

Have you examined these closely to see if there is a name on them anywhere? Someone made them so they must be supplied by somebody.
