Mitre saw is really usefull, though a fretsaw might be enough. Fretsaw is a must due to round cuts.


Maybe I'm overlooking the obvious, but I can't find some essential details like how you did the footings.

This is a great project. I would be interested in building one that is much larger, say, for a back deck that is 16'x26'. I imagine it would have to be about 18'x30' and about 12' high (to accommodate the structure from the ground to the roof of the house not just the deck itself). I am wondering what kind of reinforcement would be needed in the center or if it could be built without the Parthenon effect where it will end up looking like a building filled with columns. Any suggestions? Has anyone ever built one to those dimensions? Anyway, beautiful structure - very pleasing to the eye.

how do you make the top

Which top, orbecerril? The one for the strips? It's a 5x10cm plank turned sideways

Thanks, scoochmaroo. Noone could imagine that when I brought home a pile of planks and wall studs :)
