I’ve made several of these obelisks for growing vines on. They are all from Western Red Cedar so they last well outdoors. I don’t treat them at all as I kind of like the grey that they assume after several months, however it is a good idea to put a brick or stone under each foot to keep it off the direct ground contact. Photos show them new, slightly used, and overgrown. Easy to make in different heights, Six feet seems about right for most plants. Remember to use outdoor screws or staples and a dab of tightbond adhesive on each joint.

These will sure do the job and also make nice garden ornaments as well.
