I made this a few years before I made Tanglewood Bridge. I just had a request for this, so I’m posting it for everyone to see.
I didn’t peel the bark off on this, so it’s getting kind of punky looking. I recommend peeling the bark if you ever make one. Next summer I’ll take some better views,.

But I like the punky look! LOL Darryl says he knows where some wood is. So will be waiting to get that out of the woods. I love this one would be perfect for my area I want it in. The morning glories would look awesome growing on it and the birds will have a cozy spot to hide from that pesky perigran. (sp) We took down some trees so I have to get some quick things up till my new bushes come in. Will be looking forward to the posts.

You should be able to figure out that mess. Just use your imagination, & work out a design. The wood also gets Punky on the inside with the bark on. This has been holding together about 8 years, Give or take a few. I’m planning on making a new one when I get around to it. Some of them tag alder growths have a lot of bent stuff from the snow.

Hi Dick;
—-well I do believe Dick that your mind tends to run to seeing in the rustic frame of mind.

Great piece of rustic ‘wood art’
GODSPEED,
Frank

I tried a grape vine on it but the soil must be wrong, or to cold.

Well looks like I beat the snow today! This morning Darryl and I went out to nephew’s hunting land and picked up a bunch of tag! Yippee! Of course I was more excited about getting it then you know who! LOL Anyways, Dick are you using nails to start the framing? I am drawing up my own style tonite. I plan on making it inside and have an air nail gun. Thought I would make it up in 2 sections until I can get it out the door and finish it up outside in the garage. I think I have enough to do a small bridge too. Can’t wait to get started!

Krum,
I like the epoxy coated deck screws, I buy at L&M. Screws work better because when the wood dries, nails some times loosen up, & also you can easily take it apart if you want to.

Did you get a tenon maker ?

Have fun, the birds will be back any day now.
