This is my wifes mothersday gift from me
I build this arbor from construction spruce lumber including the round posts which i turned on a router lathe that i build for this project.
The staining still needs to be finished but i need dry weather.
The last 3 pics are of a simple way to draw a arch used for the top arch board .
I simply locate the start, centre and end points of the arch and tack in nails at these points ,
then I take 2 boards and place them on the nails and srcrew them together at the intersection.
Moving the boards with a pencil located at the intersection along the nails will draw the arch quickly without a trammel and centre point .

Wow, well done! Thanks for the tip on drawing an arc.
Would love to know more about your router/lathe.
