Step 1: Selecting Lumber and Getting Tools

Purchase a bundle of lumber.  I choose to buy 48"x1.5"x0.25"pine due to the low cost.  Select 32 pieces that are straight and lay flat.  I used a small diameter drill bit for predrilling holes, and 0.5" length screws #2 diameter for fastening the wood.

how much did this set you back in total?
I remember the lumber costing 5 dollars and the screws cost 2 dollars, all this was purchased at The Home Depot. <br>gehone
I got sticker shock last year when I was at the big orange box store looking at pre-assembled trellises they had. Yours seems much more reasonably priced to me. I need to make something for my beans this year.
How should the wood be protected from fungus or any other infection? <br> <br>Sharad
I had planned for the wood to weather and deteriorate, but anyone who wants to preserve their trellis can do so by painting or staining the wood.
Thanks. You have shown a very nice method for making a trellis. <br> <br>Sharad
Nothing has sprouted yet.
