I am wanting to build the same arbour as seen on the Bunnings DIY Video. I've got most of it down except the actual dimensions
ie height, width and dims of all pieces. it looks exactly what I am after and just want to make sure before moving ahead. I know these can be a bit of a "moving feast" however this appears to fit perfectly. The video is good except it does not quite provide the detail on some parts of the build. The construction list seems not to cover all the timber required hence need the detail. Can anyone help a newbie??? tks GM
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Great to see you've been inspired by the How to build a D.I.Y. timber garden arbour project and want to build your own.
Normally the ever-helpful and knowledgable @MitchellMc would be on hand to assist you with this project but he is taking a well-deserved break. I will ask him to assist as soon as he gets back next week.
In the meantime, you might get all you need from this previous discussion from a year ago: Cost of building the timber garden arbour. In that discussion, Mitch put together the following list:
If you print out the list with the item numbers and took it into a Bunnings store, a team member could help get the materials together for you.
Hope that helps,
From the construction guide, I believe the size of the actual arbour would be approximately 2.5m high, 1.2m wide and 0.7m deep. The cut list in step one lists the lengths and dimensions of all the pieces required:
Here’s our cut list:
2 @ 2400 x 90 x 45mm
4 @ 2100 x 18 x 18mm
4 @ 568 x 18 x 18mm
2 @ 1780 x 140 x 45mm
5 @ 985 x 70 x 35mm
Please let me know if you need additional information or help.
