I built this pergola to be used as an outdoor unit after the owner was finished using it indoors as a display. The columns are 1”x6”x10’ put together with biscuits and the new gorilla wood glue. All the trim work was glued on with gorilla glue and then air gunned in place. The trellis is all half-lap joints and again secured with the new gorilla wood glue. The airplanes are secured to metal rods using gorilla glue as well. This is my entry in the gorilla glue challenge.

Hey Jeff, I noticed that your tag is “challenge 06”. You may want to edit it so it reads “challenge06”. Just want to make sure you get entered properly. Once again, nice build.

It looks as though my photo didn’t rotate and I need to figure out how to edit my tag from challenge 06 to challenge06. One day I will figure out the computer. Thanks for all the comments.

A great looking Pergola, & Good Luck!

I don’t know what kind of image editing you have, but when you click preview, there’s usually some arrows

to rotate image right, or left.

This looks great. I would love to build one for my back yard. How ever did you put it inside your home? If so why? Or is this something in a store you are selling? I would like to see more of it. My wife bugs me all the time to make one but I dont know where to start. Good luck on the contest.

Dave – the pergola is starting out inside an Ace Hardware Store as part of a display. It will be moved outdoors in the fall. I did dry assemble the entire unit in my garage. (ceiling height of 20 feet!). I drew up the plans after looking at several different pergolas and combining features that I liked.
