My sister had asked me for a trellis for one of her flower gardens. She wanted something that would take up space on the side of her garage. After a few days of contemplating, I came up with what my nephew calls “bubbles”. One piece of 3/4” exterior plywood and a jig saw, exterior primer and trim paint.

That is very impressive. Well done.

I assume you had a circle cutting jig for your jig saw. Still, this had to be a tedious process.

yes, I made a jig out of some scrap wood. The cutting went fairly fast. A lot of edges to sand!

That is a pretty cool looking trellis. Curious how did you fasten them all together?

this is SO cool.
brilliant idea and execution.

I’d love to see it over at – without plants and then with the flowers.

I love the project, I’m not sure I understand—-”She wanted something that would take up space”??

That is a very nice project! At first I though it is plywood strips bent after soaking to form circles.

Is it all done using a single sheet of plywood and cutting smaller and smaller circles?

Is the jig a simple plywood strip fixed in the middle of the sheet on one and and on the jig saw on the other??
