This is the third arbor I’ve built. First two were not sealed enough, so this time I went back to the West System.

I’m sure some of you will get a kick out of the way I figure out angles/arches. Since this pic, I have upgraded my tool collection to the Woodpecker trammel heads!

I see no problem with it. That’s how I draw circles for my wagon wheels.

Great project.

Great looking arbor. The simplest tools are often the best. I’m pretty sure the Romans didn’t have fancy tools and look what they were able to build.

Very nice arbor. I wonder if a car repair filler (Bondo?) would work well too.
