  1. First pergola

    My wife has been asking for a pergola for quite some time. After taking it easy for the summer, I finally had the ambition to take it on. The verticals and supports are 5×5 tamarack. The top is made up of 3"x 6"x 16' hemlock and is topped of with 1.5" square hemlock. All of the wood was...
  2. Pergola

    The second in my Catch-up file… This is "bending" the rules because I'm not QUITE sure it's done… I may want to add another layer of beams cross-wise over the top but cannot decide between 2×6's again, 2×4's for a step down look or lattice for cost and shade, but perhaps not upkeep. I am also...
  3. Backyard Pergola

    Some added shade for the backyard patio. I plan on expanding the concrete patio eventually, just past the footers of the pergola.
  4. New open style deck

    This is a commissioned project that started late in the year 2010 and finished in January. In an effort to give an updated outdoor space for their new pool with out crowding an already small back yard space. I wish I could add more pics so you could see the old deck. It was elevated to the...
  5. Arched Arbor / Pergola for large corner Sandbox

    This project took a bit of scribbling on paper and computer-aided drawing (SketchUp) to get it right. Due to the two palm trees, the angle of the beams form a slightly acute triangle when viewed from above. Additionally, since it is near our fence, I was told by the city that it needed to pass...
  6. Pergola

    Here is a pergola I created in the back yard. My wife wanted it to match the white fences so I made it out of pressure treated lumber and primed it. I am holding off of putting on the final touches until some planters are put in on each side. Also I will be adding lighting in the future...
  7. Three Gable Timber Frame Pavilion

    I recently finished a new timber frame style pavilion in my friends backyard. It was built from rough sawn, full dimension Douglas Fir from a local mill. He wanted an open outdoor structure built on his deck to shield them from the sun. He liked the idea of three gables with the east most gable...

  9. reclaimed cedar Pergola

    Our umbrella broke so I did what any woodworker would do, built a pergola! Took me about 8 hours or less. The cedar came from a neighbors porch railing so I just had to plain it all down and put it together. It was a lot more work than that but I'll be modest. Going to plant some Jasmine by...
  10. Pergola and swing

    Construction Notes: This 10' x 12' pergola is my own design and came from photos and observations of other pergolas. It is recommended for those with at least intermediate skill level. The construction is straightforward and uses stock lumber dimensions and lengths. The swing plans were...
  11. patio trellis enclosure

    fun garden project to provide some patio privacy. couldn't find a cheap post hole digger, so hand dug the post holes, erected 6×6 posts, bandsaw cut the post caps, used 2×6 post ties, and ripped down treated stock to 1.25×2 for lattice work. lots of screws. just planted a bunch of...
  12. Pergola

    My client built their house in a nice neighborhood with a wooded lot behind them. After a few years, the Association where they live decided to put a walking trail right behind their house, so they wanted some privacy. This pergola is one of my favorites, and they were very pleased with the...
  13. Walnut Votive with Malachite Inlay

    Hey again, this came out of a 3×5 1/2×40 chunk of walnut with some burly grain at one end. I decided to create a fun gift for Christmas (on sale at the gallery!) and so incorporated Malachite and Gold Mica into an inlaid rim, and then added both a red and green (buyers gets both) glass votive.

Made of Walnut(leftover from End Table I Made), QS Sycamore?(Pallet), Cherry?(Pallet). Finished with Tung Oil & Clear Laquer. Held together with...
  15. Pergola, Shed and an Extra

    It's been quite a while since I posted a project here on LJs. It's not that I wasn't working on anything. Just the opposite. It was a long Summer of getting things done in and around the house and a good portion of it was dedicated to renovating the yard. The hardscape that was put down in...
  16. Pergola

    Client's daughter was getting married and he wanted a 10×12 pergola for the reception, then his wife got involved. It grew to 16×22, LED dimmable lighting, 2 ceiling fans, outdoor TV, roll up sun shades, wifi, stereo, new handrails with LED dimmable lighting. All the LED, TV, stereo and fans are...
  17. Attached Pergola

    I added this pergola onto our back patio for some much needed shade next to the pool. It is HUGE, spanning 36' x 10'. I attached it to the roof with custom made brackets from a metal shop made from 1/4' stainless steel and angled to match the pitch of the room. I mounted 10 of the brackets onto...
  18. Pergola for my hot tub

    Pergola I made for our hot tub. The side opposite the steps has a "table" part where the cover rests when it is off. Just flip the top over and slide it on the table. Super sturdy and easy to put the cover back on. Made out of cedar.
  19. Pergola for my parents in law

    Last hurricane took for the flimsy aluminum pergola at my parents in law house so for Christmas I offered to build them a new one with some better odds This is by no means a fine woodworking project but it was very refreshing to build a structure like this in 2 days - with a week in between to...
  20. Backyard Pergola

    Here is the completed pergola we've been wanting to put up since we moved in. We took the approach of using old barn timbers for the structure and with a little searching online and a lot of TLC we came across some really incredible Easter Red Cedar beams and boards. I used traditional style...
