The commission for Arbor #8-2 and Gate #5 began with a watercolor sketch sent to us from the homeowner. Mesmerized, Charles asked permission to post it.

#8-4

CUSTOM WOOD ARBOR #8-4

Arbor #8-4 features a few variations:

  • The vine extensions mortised to the truss are only 2-1/4″ high x 2″ deep x 1-5/8″ thick. Provided with a small fluted to help seat and train the vines.
  • The ends of the arbor flair out 9″ beyond the short post extensions.
  • The short post extensions are 3-3/4″
  • The mounting caps have eliminated the aprons and top teir overhang. The bottom of the caps are ploughed out 3/4″ deep to accept the grade posts.
  • The mounting bolt extends through to the post for instant installation, replacing the earlier, more cumbersome system of threaded rod.

The grade posts shown are not included. These are simply props we use in the shop to photograph the arbors.

PROGRESS

WOOD GARDEN ARBOR #8-4–PROGRESS

Routing to a template with a bearing guide. There are three templates, with varying radius points as per arbor lengths.

Because the router only carries to 2″ depth, the remaining stock is cut on the band saw and then returned to the router. A spiral up-cut carbide flush bit completed the profile.
