Recycled hardwood used as slats on treated Pine lengths to make a garden trellis.

 

 

The project

 

I was gifted some old hardwood timber and I needed some trellis, so I consulted the brains trust of the family, namely my 83-year-old dad. He and I built these trellis garden pot holders, three in total, and we're impressed with the result.

 

Steps

 

Step 1

 

Involve the brains trust. This is the planning process.

Step 2

 

Cut the timber to length. We also go Bunnings to cut the H3 Pine to length. Thank you Bunnings.

Step 3

 

Painting the timbers before assembling is an easier option.

 

Step 4

 

Drill countersink holes, then screw.
