    Apparently too much free time... put either iron wood or some extreme known strong in the lathe and turn it as well as put the remained shafts in lathe and true it all.... knotty wood versus clear wood yada yada

    you should try screwing cylidrical pieces together to make a long cylinder and then do the same but with a hollow center so it looks like a tube to see if it's stronger.......

    Turn the post down on a lathe so you can get it to minimul run out, turn it down 1/2" smaller than I'd of ends, fiberglass it to exact size, then coat in 200mph tape.

    Fun fact, two 2x4s glued and screwed together will be stronger than the 4x4. That would be a good test:)

    Use a couple pieces of rebar it’ll end up twisting together it’ll look cool and if the welds are strong enough it shouldn’t break
