A few days ago, our neighbors asked to make a simple trellis for their passion flower vine which had collapsed under its weight. I’ve come up with what I think would fit their backyard. It is 6’6” tall, 38” wide. Today I finished cutting the parts with notches and dados for joinery and started gluing them with polyurethane glue. I want to use joinery and glue to avoid a lot of screws as fasteners because the lattice is made of thin stock to keep the whole thing light: 1/2” by 3/4”. The frame is made of 1-1/2” by 2” stock.

The joints where the lattice is attached to the frame will be hidden by the second half of the frame.

To be continued…

Thanks Ralbuck! I guess I’ll get some spar varnish for this project. Was wondering if spar varnish can be applied over dried penetrating oil.
