This is a trellis that I whipped together one weekend for some topsy turvies to hang from. It was made from cedar posts used to ship tractors from Vietnam and Japan. My Step-dad had them in his barn for a decade and very generously gave them to me instead of burning them. I have more cedar posts than I know what to do with, if only it was walnut! The copper pipe was a leftover from another project. The hanging plant things weren’t such a hit but the trellis will last a long time. This is my first project using repurposed lumber, and I loved it. It cost me about a dollar to build, so I guess the moral is to go to agricultural dealerships and see if they have any shipping crate lumber they are about to dispose of, you might get quite the deal.
