          Trellis and Arbor

          Great work, guys. I want to build both a trellis and a walk through arbor.
          Would you mind posting the details like dimension and material used? I'll come up with my own design pattern, but knowing how heavy material to use would be a great help!

            Bob, do you do anthing different on your "feet" to support the weight on the hooks?

            I keep having mine fall over (especially just a one sided hook)....course my feeder hold too much food !!!

            I just saw a square design I though about trying, with four pieces sticking into the ground.

            Thanks
            Ed

              When i designed my hooks 8 years ago i did something different than everyone else. They all use a seperate rod bent 90* and now you have to pound 2 pcs of rod into the ground. I can pound my hook thru blacktop and i have done it at craft shows. I cut the bottom of the shepherd hook at a 45 with my bandsaw then i cut a piece of 1/4x2" flat 7 inches long and its also cut on a 45 to cut the soil. Then i weld it on the hook so there is 10"-12" of hook at the bottom of the flatbar. So they are pounded in the ground 18-19 inches and they will not tip. Thats what is nice about the flatbar because you can use a big hammer to drive them in if needed. I leave a small gap between the hook and flatbar one for weld penetration and the other to get paint in the crack. That flatbar needs welded on good and i have never had one break off. Those other guys hooks i fix at least a dozen a year with the China one tack on each side....Bob

              When i used to go to the craft shows i hung cement blocks on my hooks to show how good they stayed up.

                      The center and both outside verticle pieces are 5/8" rebar, the horizontal pieces are 3/4" rebar and the diagonal pieces are 1/4" rebar. The center is 5'6" tall the width is 2 1/2' and the feet are 6"x6"
