Thirty Ten is a child theme of Twenty Ten and could be excellent for you as it comes with 3 columns as you want.

There's more information about custom theme modification to add sidebars on another thread here

The link is potintig to the tutorial here which I found quite useful, that basically tells you to change functions.php so register_sidebars creates the number of sidebars you want


if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') )


if ( function_exists('register_sidebars') ) {

Add at least a summary. An answer should be more than just some links. – toscho Mar 31 '12 at 13:03
