This was a project for my mom’s backyard that I just recently finished. A 12 foot long and 4 foot wide garden bridge.
Made from two 2”x8”x12’ boards for the arches and 2×4s for the decking and posts. All treated pine. The rails were cut out from the scraps of the arches and routed. 2×2s were used for the diagonal supports.
Used a jigsaw to cut out the arch that I drew by using a string at the right distance. Basically a giant compass.
Through bolts and copper tubing were used to attach the bracing on the underside. 4 screws in each of the 2×4s on the deck. I hope it’ll be able to withstand the elements for years.
