This was a garage pergola also made for my neighbor. We barter landscape work, plants, etc (he is in landscaping) for woodworking. This was 19’ long and the beams are 2×8x20 eastern red cedar. The sawyer I go to did an awesome job getting the wood cut. The brackets are also ERC and timber frame style mortise and tenon joined. Its through bolted with 2 1/2” hot dipped galvanized bolts on each side and nylock nuts and 3” washers to the triple 2×6’s on each side of the garage. The top slats were dado’d to fit in place on the beams and then screwed on. The finish is cabots australian timber oil which is awesome for the oily ERC wood. Don’t use water based on ERC, it peels off and doesn’t penetrate.
