Hi everyone , here is my third rustic arbor that i designed and built using pine branches . A farm near by was clear cut last year and there were all kinds of left over branches and of course i hate to see things go to waste so this is what i came up with. It is 7 ft square and 13 ft high . I even wore my Lumberjock shirt as i was building it .

you are such an artist!!!!! This is lovely with the little (whatever its official name is) bell-tower on the top.

And wearing your LJ shirt while building, well that just makes this even more extra special!!
Fantastic job, again.

Looks great John

I love the design

That took some work to sort all those branchs, to get even pieces. But it sure turned out nice!

Awesome! That is really cool. Is it just sitting on the ground or are the corner posts buried?. Nice work John

Hi John;

Thats cool. I wouldn’t stand under it in a rain storm and expect good results.

I think you’ll find yourself all washed up. lol
