I'm lovin your style
How does one build the arbor? What connects the wood pieces? Where do you get your wood?
I could spend a day picking your brain
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Bethany
I use spruce branches for the arbors.
i predrill the wood then use 5" galvinized nails. i also use a finished nailer and screws for the smaller branches.

The birdhouses are all made from old barn wood
it is all free wood. i also use a finish nailer for them.2 1/2" galv. nails

thanks again
john
