The local Boy’s and Girls club had requested some “labor of love” which was to build an arbor for their community garden. They payed the cost for the material items and I had to get it built and installed. So how could I say anything but yes. I started off making the side trellis in my shop, then transfered all the remaining lumber over to the site and with the help of family members we installed and concreted the post in, bolted on the top, braced the top to keep the 2×4’s from twisting. Now next spring “they” can stain it (I hate to paint) and enjoy it for a long time..

You did a beautiful job on this arbor and it was also for a worthy cause.

@ grumpymike
just a few kids helped with cleaning out the holes for the post and leveling the dirt after it was all done, and one young man helped with mixing the concrete.
