Step 3: Set the first diagonals

Center the 5-inch spacing guide on the middle support stick at its base. At each end of the guide, insert a stick diagonally into the ground at about a 60-degree angle, going about 3 inches deep. Keep the diagonals parallel to each other. Then, at the base of the first sticks, insert diagonals in the opposite direction, always crossing in front of the support stick.

They look good! Is there not risk of them sprouting?<br />
This is really amazing that it is coming at this moment. I&nbsp;recently went to Williamsburg where there they have done the colonial weave that you were just talking about.<br /> <br /> Excellent Instructable and thank you!<br />
