Weekend Project: Trellis Over Garage Door
For quite a while now, I've wanted to build a trellis over the garage door. Now that the city building permits are closed, I have the time to screw around with some fun little tasks like this.
I took a spare 12 foot cedar 2x6 and ripped it into two 2x3s with the table saw. Then, I cut off each of the ends at a 30degree angle to match the support beams over the porches. After that, I made some simple 20" 2x2s out of some leftover scraps. I mounted the two 2x3s on the knee braces over the garage, then spaced the 2x2s 8" apart. I used 3 1/2" deck screws to fasten the 2x3s down, 2 1/2" deck screws for the 2x2s. Here are some pics:
This house is starting to look pretty darn nice, I think...
