This was a short project I did last summer.
My sister was putting together a Japanese inspired garden and asked me to build a small bridge to cross the pond we had just put in.
There are several Japanese styled bridges, but in such a small space I decided to build a small bridge with a slight curve to it
|Like all good projects, it begins with a pile of raw wood.|
|These pegs will aid with the bending|
|Two timbers are laminated between 3 pegs|
|Meanwhile, I cut up and chamfer the edges of some planks|
|The two curved timbers are joined with baseplates|
|The base is staked into place and the planks start going on|
|Getting the gaps even|
|I'm using weather proof screws, so hopefully it'll last|
|The finished bridge|
|Hopefully it'll weather into the landscape after a while|
