I want to make an optical illusion with wood. How can I fool the eye into thinking these pillars are all the same size?

I have a long plank of wood and I want to put pillars on it, so that if you raise the plank to eye-level, all pillars look the same size. I think this is possible, like widening the top of a tower to make it look straight, but I can't find any literature or formulas to make this work. I mean I know that I could just eyeball it, but I was really hoping to do this as precisely as possible. Any help would be great, thanks!
