Step 1: Mea­sure be­tween your posts

In this ex­am­ple we al­ready have posts in place. Mea­sure be­tween the posts to make sure the lat­tice will fit in be­tween. Once that’s done, mea­sure the lat­tice and then cut the lat­tice sur­round to fit. Trans­fer mea­sur­ing marks onto the sur­round tim­ber and cut two widths and two lengths.

Step 2: Cut pieces for your lat­tice frame

Cut a 45-de­gree mitre so it gives a nice join and you don’t see any end ground. Square one end and cut a mitre on it. Mea­sure from there along the short edge and cut your next mitre. Do this for the tops and bot­toms, giv­ing you the pieces re­quired for your frame.

Step 3: At­tach the sur­round to the lat­tice and screw it to­gether

Put the sur­round onto the lat­tice by plac­ing the lat­tice into the groove on the sur­round. Pre-drill the cor­ners and screw them to­gether, re­peat­ing this all the way around.
