When we went to England last summer I saw a trellis at Kew Gardens
I decided to build a copy to hide my neighbors back house, so I studied my photos and drew out some plans for the trellis.
The three uprights are pressure treated. I notched out each trellis at the top and bottom with a circular saw to accomodate the 2 x material. All of the actual trellis pieces were my first resaw job on the bandsaw.
The trellis is assembled with countersunk deck screws and outdoor narrow crown staples.
In one photo you can see plugs that I cut to cover the screw heads. They still need a sanding.
It took about a weekend to build. Just waiting for the plants to fill in.
