Backyard Arbor

To finish out the massive amount of work that we have done in our back yard, just felt we needed an arbor for an entry into the yard and to hide a work area and pool pump. I built this from 5/4 pressure treated lumber. The slats were ripped from the material and routed on two sides. Love working with the heavier material. Tried my best to hide as much of the joinery as I could. The little lady helping me is my 94 year old mom. I purposely kept is tall with full 8 ft material to give the look we wanted next to the deck. Plan to stain same as fence and plant grapevines for the foliage.
