So this started with the purchase of a Honeysuckle in an attempt to lure some Hummingbirds to my yard, needed a trellis so grabbed some old boards that were kicking around and started to rip them to width on the tablesaw.
Started to lay it out then marked out the half lap joints then decided to hand cut and chisel for some hand saw practice, a few hours later and 28 joints (56 halves, 112 cuts) I was finished! by the end the joints looked not bad and fit pretty good!
Made from P.T. 5/4 decking and a few drops of T.B. III, sure hope them Birds show up!

Nice one Andre. Good to get a look at your shop!

Surely the birds will appear when the flowers do and the plant reaches up. Beautiful work for that corner of your garden !
