How do you Install your New Cedar Split-Rail Arbor?  It is EASY as 1-2-3!

You will find this arbour fast and easy to assemble.  It is assembled upside down and once assembled it is turned
upright.  It has a top section, two side sections, four angle braces, two anchoring braces, and all the necessary
screws and instructions for assembly.  It takes approximately 15 minutes to assemble and will require a drill with a #2
square bit and a level.  The total weight of the arbor is approximately 200 pounds and will easily fit in the back of a
pickup or trailer.

STEP 1   To open package cut the two bands with a pair
of tin snips.  Wear safety glasses and stand to the side of
the band when cutting (Diagram 1).  Lift the two side
panels from the top of the package and set them to the side.  

            STEP 2   Using a level,
                                                make sure upside down
                                                 top (referred to as top)
                                                 is level using shims on
                                                 the ground under the top
                                                 for adjustment.

        STEP 3   You will need to install one pair of legs at a time by picking up one
side                                                            leg and sliding it into the slot of the top.  Make sure the slats connecting
the legs                                                           are to the outside.  Have an assistant hold legs vertical and place one
screw on                                                             each side of slat to attach leg to top as seen in Diagram 2.

STEP 4   You will find 4 cross braces for securing legs in a vertical position.  
Place                                                         one screw to attach a cross brace to the outside of the leg, with the top
corner                                                               even with the top of the lowest slat in the leg (see brace in Diagram 3).  

     STEP 5   Using the level ensure the
                                        leg is plumb (at a right angle to the
top) and place one screw into bottom cross brace attaching it to the
inside of the top as seen in diagram 3.  Place second screw at top and
bottom of cross brace.  

STEP 6   Repeat steps 4 & 5 above for cross brace installation on the
other side of the first pair of legs.  

STEP 7   Install second set of legs by repeating steps 3,4,5 & 6.

     STEP 8   Using two people, tip arbor on its side by pulling it over with its legs.   
                                                        Lift base and stand it upright.  Arbor can be carried
                                                        and moved to desired location. (see diagram 4).

     STEP 9   To secure arbor
                                                        in its desired location, attach
                                                        to solid object (ie:  fence) or
                                                        dig one hole in the middle on
                                                        each set of legs to attach
                                                        anchoring brace.  Screw
                                                        anchoring brace onto arbor
so that top of brace is even with the second slat as seen in diagram 5.   
We recommend using concrete when burying the anchor to ensure arbor
is stable.

Arbor will go grey over time due to exposure to sun, rain and snow.  
If you want to keep its natural beauty we recommend Sikkens Cetol SRD
(exterior translucent wood finish), which is available in many tints.  

We now have an 18" x 72" cedar bench seat that can be
added to arbor for a nice relaxing place to sit!
