Weekend Arbor Woodworking Plan
With a few simple hand tools
and some lumber and supplies from your local home center, you can build
this beautiful arbor in one weekend—and then spend the rest of your
summer weekends enjoying it!
Our basic arbor woodworking plan (left) provides an attractive, simple
archway along a garden path. With a little more lumber, you can also build
an optional gate, fence, and even an attached garden bench, see closer
look for details.
Overall size of the basic arbor is 86-1/4" high x 64-1/2" wide x 31" deep.
We used standard, dimensional western red cedar lumber, so there's no ripping
involved. Plus, we'll show you and easy method for anchoring the arbor to
concrete pads. This woodworking project plan appeared in Workbench magazine
power tools: Circular hand saw, jig saw, router.
