This Weekend Arbor is aptly named for two reasons. First, you can actually build this beautiful project in a weekend (maybe even a long day). And second, once you've built the arbor, you're sure to spend many pleasant weekend hours enjoying it.
BONUS PLANS: Save more than $10 and build a slightly larger arbor, complete with two, facing benches, by also ordering our Twin Seat Arbor at a special price when ordered with this garden arbor.
And the reasons you'll enjoy it go beyond ease of construction. You can build this arbor to fit your garden and your dreams.
The basic arbor acts as a beautiful archway along a garden path. If you add a bench, complete with backrest, the arbor becomes a destination in your garden. Or add a gate and fence and the arbor helps define your garden and your property. Instructions on building all three versions are included in one straightforward package.
Both blueprints come with a shopping list, cutting schedule, construction details, full-size pattern templates, step-by-step instructions, and plenty of illustrations.
The Weekend Arbor is 86-inches high and 64-inches wide. Ours was built out of standard, dimensional western red cedar lumber, so there's no ripping involved. Tools required include only a circular saw, a jigsaw, and a router.
