When my daughter came to me and said she was getting married, I was excited. Not because she was moving out, (because she had already done that) I was excited that I was getting some extra shop time to make this garden arbor for the wedding. I even got to brush up on some scrolling with a lil’ critter art for the corner braces…..

I really like that. It looks like it was a lot of fun to make as well as a wonderful end-result.

Randy, There’s more to this project then just good looks. This lumber was strategically cut to assure that the arbor would stand a half an inch shorter then my new son-in-law. Yeah, I was smiling too….

Just kiddin’ ;^)

Turned out really cool.

Love the cut out “critters”.

I had the same assignment for my youngest daughter’s wedding here at my place. Got a start on the arbor, my wife came out to the shop, and said “never mind, it’s off. AND DON”T SAY A WORD TO HER!” Welcome to my world!

I like the “little critter art”, it really sets it off.

Did you cut them free hand?
