Just for fun I decided to build this 6’ Garden Bridge. It is all mortise-tenon, no fasteners. Deck boards mortise into side rails. Talk about needing a bunch of clamps. Every thing cut out on my cnc, except for hand rail. It was laminated in vacuum bag. Have no clue why I built it, just a wild hair I guess. Have no Garden. Duh! Anyone need one?

P.S. Don’t ask why the white shows up with blue tint.

I guess it was one of those things where you wanted to see if you could do it or what it would look like? You built this more like a piece of furniture rather than a typical bridge. Very nice work.
