I am a newbie here from the GardenTenders forum. I need help finishing my pergola, and just need to ask a question regarding the beams running across. Here is where have got to so far, 2nd link in the 1st post
My question is in regards to the beams that will go across…..Do I have to jig a hole into them to sit on the side bars, or is it just a matter of nailing/screwing them down? Halfway thru the link above, you can see my inspirational pergola.
I don’t know if you understand what am asking here? You can see that I have 4 horizontal beams up already ( 2 on each side ). My next step in to get the 12 other horizontal beams up, and that is the question am asking, as to how to go about it.
PS: if you have pictures to support your suggestion, please post them
