My wife wanted an arbor covering the entrance to this small section of the yard. Now she has one!

It took two weekends (probably only 8-10 hours all together) including felling the trees and putting it up.

I’m pretty happy with it.

Regarding wood types: all common woods in the NE US. I wasn’t too picky. Mostly maple and oak. The 4 main posts are oak.

-- I do this for fun.

I like it, anyone can work with dimensional lumber, lol. I am doing some similar things on my property also, you have inspired me on my next project.

Very good – it sits nicely in the setting.
