Materials list

  • Two 6' 1 x 6s for lattice slats and cap rail
  • Two 8' 5⁄4 x 6s for the frame
  • 4" decking or stainless-steel screws; 1¼" and 2½" galvanized nails or staples
  • ½" copper or plastic pipe and long decking or masonry screws
  • Exterior stain and sealer
Materials tip

Cedar is often knotty, so choose boards with the fewest and smallest knots that you can find. You may need to throw out some pieces with knots (they will break easily), and you can use some shorter pieces for the horizontals. Also choose relatively clear lumber for the frame.
