“Wrap MDF on a pole!?!?!?! Cut to width with a utility knife, cut to height with any power saw! Seal it, paint it, add the trim rings top and bottom and what a finished look to an old grey basement beam pole! Unbeatable look, great quality, easy to install. Make sure you crack each seam to get a round effect, and make sure to liquid nail all the way to the edges for a tight fit to the pole. I wrapped mine with bungee cords and let it dry overnight, perfect! Pros High quality, Durable, easy to install, seal it first (with oil based primer), before paint” [review from lowes.com website]
