This is a curved trellis I built to follow the curved limestone wall. It is all built out of cedar . I dado all 6×6 cedar post in my studio to keep the angle consistent and attatched the 2×6 before we set all post in concrete. We then installed all post into ground at the level height and went to work setting all the upper portion.

Very Very nice job on that trellis. the design must have been as much work as the cutting and assembling!
You can be real proud of that project!!!!!!!

In another setting I could imagine continuing the curve to form a dome with opening at the top sort of like the Parthenon in Rome. Very nicely done!

Great job. That would be great around the curved end of my pool. Though I am not sure I could set each of the posts level and aligned as you did.
