Cedar Arbor

My wife wanted to buy a simple arbor for the side of our house. Naturally in puffed up indignation I forbad it and insisted I’d build one. I drew up a few variations in SketchUp, found some cedar flooring on craigslist, got her approval and here it is.

I put it up before putting a finish on it, just using some thinned Tung oil to wipe on. I haven’t built one of these before, so hope it holds up ok, but she’s happy so will count this one as a success!

I not sure which impresses me more….the arbor or your sketch-up!!! Very nice job on both.

Thanks all. Ya BusterB, I’ve been using SketchUp longer than working with wood, sadly I finish many more projects in SU than ever see real life. Oh well.
