Trellis - Using Lathe and Leftovers

trellis-using-lathe-and-leftovers

The verse, mother goose maybe, about the crooked man who built a crooked house, with a crooked mouse... Came to mind as I put this together.

It is by no stretch of the imagination, straight. It's made from an old pallet board, some garden stakes and some lath.

To hold it together, I used a couple sizes of finishing nails. No particular reason.

I began by cutting the pallet board into short pieces. Two for the top, and two for the bottom.

I marked where the nails needed to be with a black sharpie. Then, started the nails, so when I sat the lath on top of the longer cut board, I did not have to hold the nails to pound them.

Cut middle of board at an angle. I used a sharpie to trace the angle that the lath crossed. Then used the radial arm saw to cut on the line.
