this is another project I’m finishing up for my sister in law to go with the chairs. She is going to paint it herself and I will add a finished pic when she is done. This plan is from popular mechanics. i like the way it turned out….its far from fine woodworking but it is a lot of fun to build and I’m sure some of you guys will want to build one. you can build it for a lot less than what they are asking for them and they are 2×2 This one is 4×4 posts.
I am not completely satisfied with my arch skills and I think I will make me a router jig to cut them out next time.
iIalso found a good looking plan for a pitched roof and it looks nice.
I think I am going to try that next time

I added a finished pic at my sister in laws all painted and set up

This is a nice addition to your garden. It’s very attractive.

Seems like your spending a lot of time in the shop these days Moosesman…great job on the trellis and I am sure it will be a hit with the sister-in-law. Keep up the good work.

Thanks thinkerf
I have had a little extra time the past month to get the advantage to get these done. Honestly I started the chairs in April o last year so it’s been a while really. The trellis was a pretty quick project. The chairs took a bit of time. I wish I could spend everyday in the shop tho.
Are you working on anything new? Look forward to seeing a new project from you soon.
