Good luck building this beautiful arbor bench.
Consider something different with the lattice work on the sides. The plan calls for a pre-fab lattice, but to really set your arbor apart from anyone else’s, you could create your own lattice design to integrate into your landscaping plan. For an arbor that I built, I utilized an 8×8 square pattern that had a lap joint where the pieces crossed. This was a lot of work, but it still looks great, and has held up since 1999!
