Garden Pergola

Friends of mine bought a pergola package from a local building supply store. Basically, it was a pile of raw lumber that didn’t match the plans. When all was said and done, we ended up with over length cedar boards which permitted me to take okay plans and make them into a unique show piece with custom end profiles. I also added mortise and tenon joints on the angle braces where they meet the posts and notched the cross rafters for additional stability.
