I built a cool lattice!

I filmed every step and made a how to as well. When I have the video edited Ill share it on my blog.

Supplies cost me a total of 9 dollars!

The first one took me about 2 hours, but I wad to work out some design kinks and adjust the video camera alot.

Re: I built a cool lattice!

Nice. May I suggest an angle brace on each side. Come up about two feet and put a 1x2 diagonally to the long side. Put one on each side. You could also add an angle brace to the short side too. This will add a great amount of stability.

What are you going to plant by it? Green beans?

It looks like you have a river flowing by, I like that a lot.
The things I do are an evolution and I am always learning. My way is not the only way of doing things, and I may and will change the way I do things as I learn better ways. So any advice that I give is in that spirit.
