Trouble creating fluted column

I’m having trouble creating a fluted column, where the base diameter is larger than the capital diameter. I’m sure I must be missing something.

I tried to start at top and create the flutes and push/pull the whole plane down the the base, but I cannot figure out how to stretch it to fit the bottom diameter

thank you in advance for any and all assistance.


You could select the bottom of the column and use Scale to enlarge it.


Wow, you made that look so easy! Thanks so much

It should be easy enough. Note I only selected the bottom of the column. I scaled about the center of the selection and used a corner handle. Then I typed the desired dimension including the units.
