This is the second arbor for our backyard
The arbor has some new details in the lattice panels and cross pieces on top of the arch.
The project is made from normal construction lumber at a cost of $ 100.00 .
Two planter boxes are still to come for below the lattice panels .
The round posts where made on my router lathe and are made up of 4 pieces which made for less joints
for weather to penetrate.

Looks like you have raised the bar (pun intended) on garden arbors. The LOML looked and said oooo can I have one? Nice job and great design ideas.
