Hello friends, This time i want to show u how i made an arbour. I will try to show it in steps. It will be a lot of steps ;)
In the beginning i had to made a project. I based just on a picture of completed work, so i had to project all of it (roof, floor, walls, connetions, ...). This was the first time for me to do such a things, and make it. I wasn’t easy to do. But with every day that passed, i gained a lot of new experience. The woods i used:
- Fir wood
- Pine wood
- Larch wood
- Oak wood

All materials i had to prepare by my self.

I had to plane a two sides of wood so it could lay stady one to by one. It helped me to build the walls.

With chisels i made a “few” cuts for better look.

Next step was to target a sixangle and try to build a six walls with the same height.

Now the cutting.

When the walls was ready, i had to drill it all.

Now, when it was all drilled, i had to prepare it for painting. So i painted it and builded again. This time i puzzled it for good with dowels. The count of dowels was something about 150. Size of dowels: length 320mm, diamater 22mm.

Time for floor. The fllor is handging on dowels – count 12.

When the floor was ready, came the time for roof.

And here are photos of finall work.

Here is video presentation.

I hope u’ve enjoyed the all of pictures from my work, first work of this kind of craft ;) Have a good day.
