Build A Trellis From Wood Scraps

A few scrap pieces of wood were
 all we needed.
We had just enough to build a small trellis for
 the side of the house.
These were pieces leftover from
 other picket fence projects.
I save everything. I never know 
when a project will pop into my head.
Lay out a simple pattern.
Bevel cut the ends.
Attach to the wall. I had rooted several
cuttings from the huge Clerodendrum
vine that's on the large trellis at the 
front of the house HERE. Cuttings are easily
rooted in water or moist soil.
It's a fast growing vine.
This is how it started last year.
 We may build another trellis on the
opposite side to create an arbor.
It's on the wall just around the corner 
from the potting bench.
No one really sees it but us.
