Re: garden timber arbour

@Handynot  are you asking how much it costs to have the cuts done by Bunnings or the costs for the whole project? First cut per piece is free on timber, each addition cut I believe is $1. It's possibly 50 cents but I'd have to check when I'm back at work.

If you are after a costing for the whole project, please list your materials and I can work it out from www.bunnings.com.au for you

Not a bad price considering how well made the project is, surely outlasting most pre-made units on the market.

Let us know if there is anything else you need. If you go ahead make sure to post some progress shots of your construction and your finished project once complete!

 

@Jason  I've included a price for x2 600mm wide lattice, the material list calls of x1. From the video it appears they are using two.
