How To Build A Repurposed Arbor Using Old Cedar Fencing

Cedar WoodGetting Started

I found some old cedar fencing and thought it was a good idea to build a lattice arbor with it.  We have a wisteria vine growing on the end of our shed with nothing to latch onto. I thought it was a good time to give it a place to grow.

I measured the dimensions of the shed in our backyard. Once I had the measurements down, I took 1×4 cedar fence pickets and ripped them into inch and a quarter strips. All you need is a table saw and a nail gun.

The wisteria vine that we have is now able to grow all around the arbor. After a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, we now have another project checked off the list.
