Krum,

I just saw the picture of the vines; awsome when in bloom. Will make a nice addition to your arbor.
Enjoy,
pierre

It looks great Krum. Good job!
Or it looks kind of Krummy. LOL

You may have a growing business going for you.
It looks like you have a lot of building material across the road.

I tried growing a grape vine on mine. No luck, either the cold weather got it, or the deer ate it.
I guess I’ll have to plant something else.

Keep having fun.

I’ve been thinking about making some more to sell. Lots of ideas going in my head! Gates would really be a cool thing to. One thing Dick…what did you use to attach it all? I used nails but not sure down the road it will rust away so better to make the last! I also added some stakes just to make sure it doesn’t go blowing away. I’d have a heartattack! Thanks all for the comments!

Great project Krum. Sure will look beautiful once the vines have matured. I would really be selective when it comes to nails though. The cost can’t be that much more expensive and you certainly don’t want it falling apart once the plantings are covering it. Make sure we get to see it when the flowers are out please!

I agree Chip to be able to make it last. Now if I can get what I need to use from Dick…LOL
I’ll be sure to post the vines in bloom. Jockmike2, I had seen Dicks arbor and just had to try it. It’s fun doing projects that you can just be on a “go for it”! I love doing things like this!
Thanks Dick for the idea.

That’s going to be quite a center piece when full of blooms. Congrads on the arbor.

Krum,
I usually use galvanized, or epoxy coated deck screws from L & M. The epoxy screws are self tapping, it helps prevent splitting. Also using screws, it makes it easier to dismantle if you have to haul it away for delivery of all the orders you’re going to be getting.

On the smaller twigs I use galvanized box nails, I either predrill, or blunt the point on the nails to prevent splitting. Green twigs tend to split easy. If you mortise, & tenon the joints, Run screws in at an angle in the corner of the joint.

Hi Krum;
—-it’s the rustic look, and what a nice wood arbor you have made here. Again, I had better not let my wife see this one or she will think I’m sleeping on the job around my place….

Thank you.
GODSPEED,
Frank

This is very artistically done Krum. You have done very well with this project.
