To find how wide the spaces will be between the flutes, multiply the width of each flute by the number of flutes that you want and then subtract that from the circumference of the blank. That will tell you how much of the column is "un-fluted" which is the total that's left for the spaces. Divide that by the same number of flutes and you'll get the width of each space. Try differnt numbers of Flutes until you get a spacing that is pleasing to you Image:Example.jpg
