Re: Garden obelisk

Galv screws (can't afford SS ;-)), the usual ratio of the depth of the top member + 2/3rds of that - but in truth I would have just eyeballed this such the screw didn't protrude through the bottom member.

Re: Garden obelisk

I should add that I would have definitely pre-drilled the top members, even those away from the ends.
