Well My Dad decided that he wanted to make Mother mad again and went and bought some rose bushes(mom hates them). Then he asked me to build him a simple trellis for them to climb. Well I decided I would get in on the making Mother mad thing and go one step further. My Father is a Indiana Univ. fan so I thought that I would make him the Indiana Univ. Symbol. This will further irritate Mother(shes a Purdue fan) But I think it turned out nice we’ll just see how long its up. Its made of PVC and some treated supports.

Nice looking work. Mom shouldn’t get too mad. After all, at least it’s all in the Big 10! Thanks for posting.

It looks nice, but it should be burned! Go Boilers!

the trellis is great—the story behind it is fabulous. Good thing this wasn’t for Mother’s Day.
Poor Mom. lol

Great story and a good job building it but as a Boilermaker, I’m on your Mom’s side with this one!
