Grape Trellis Update
Each of the three boards in the curved beams took a day to steam, glue, and bend (12 days total), with about another week to patch the holes, let dry, sand, repeat, paint, leave out in the rain, bring in the garage and dry with a towel because I'm an idiot and left them out in the rain, and screw together. But now it is at last ready for final assembly! No more waiting for something to dry. Tomorrow, weather permitting, the grape trellis will no longer be a figment of my imagination; it will become a reality. Course, then I'll have to wait several years for the grapes to grow up it.
