Garden arbor completed but still needs more stain, but the rain started to pour !
The round posts turned out good with the simple router lathe i build for this project .
The last pics are of a simple way to draw a arch with 3 nails located at start, center and end of the arch
I use 2 boards and rest them on the nails and screw them together .
I then slide the boards along the nails with a pencil located in the intersection of the 2 boards drawing the arch
eliminating a large compass rod ETC ( SIMPLE ) the nail in the centre location gets removed .
This btw is the top arch board of the arbor .

the curve-making is ingenious (I don’t quite get it but that’s ok..
the end result – stunning!

I like this arbor also. Either of them would look good here.

Lots of work though, and having done some wood working, I do appreciate all the effort you have put into these creations.

I am so jealous that my husband can’t do that. Of course, he doesn’t have the equipment either. Plus, he wouldn’t know where to start. As for me – I’m afraid of power tools. There was a carpenter on the Bob Vila show who lost a finger to the power saw. I need all of mine.

BTW, the arbours look amazing. Just beautiful and I so want at least one for myself.

I’m NOT showing this to my wife. – although, when I do show her neat stuff, it usually means i get more tools!!! It looks wonderful, but would look much better in my back yard…
