Shop update #189 (6-9-21)
My wife decided to grow some pumpkin squash this year and asked me to make a raised trellis for them. To keep the cost down, I made it out of 10 – 8 ft 1×2’s.
I started by cutting all the 1×2’s down to length. 4 legs and 12 stretchers.
I then made 2 giant rectangles using glue, brad nails, and screws.
I leaned the rectangles into each other to form a triangle and held everything together with 1×2’s and clamps.
All of the stretchers got attached with glue, brad nails, and screws.
The side supports were sticking out a little too much at head height so I trimmed them back with a jig saw.
I set it up in the garden area and my wife tied up the plants so that the branches can grow up the trellis.
