No marquetry here. These are a couple of Q&D pergolas that I built for my beloved’s yard makeover project. The pergolas themselves are just pressure treated material but the gates are really nice yellow cedar. My shop still smells great.
The sign is an old one that I carved for our previous gate years ago with new paint and gold leaf (artificial).

Thanks for looking.

Nice work. PT material or not, M&T joinery is still M&T joinery.

Always nice to see what you’re up to – these look great!
