DIY OBELISK

NZ Gardener - Gifts from the Gardens - - Diy -

Whether sup­port­ing vines or left bare, an obelisk pro­vides an el­e­ment of height to your gar­den. Make a con­tem­po­rary obelisk by ta­per­ing two sides each of four posts at a 10° an­gle. Mark the 10° an­gles at the top of each of the four posts us­ing a pro­trac­tor and pen­cil, mark­ing two ad­ja­cent sides of each leg. Then make two cuts on each leg to cre­ate an an­gle. Glue and screw the posts to­gether to form a pyra­mid. Add sup­ports and paint or stain.
