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.

Okay, I agree recycling old lumber is good – Go to Craigslist under free stuff, type in wood, lumber, hardwood, or furniture. Be patient and you will be richly rewarded.

Your trellis shows a respect for nice joinery and style. Well done.
