You could do it, but the glue-up still wouldn't be 4 x 4 due to the size of the basic material.
I've seen columns made by mitering edges thus making a 4 sided mitered column, and you could even build this with a secondary wood as the center.
Material wise you would still have 4 sides of wood (4 pieces), and to make structurally sound, the fit to the center should be OTM to minimize stress to the mitered corners.
