Assuming that the column is pre-assembled: remove the trumpet, rout
the flutes, and re-assemble. If the column is _not_ pre-assembled,
produce the column and trumpet separately, rout the flutes in the
column before joining the two together.
If you are building the column, rout the flutes in the segments before
