Second. When Your Free Pergola Template Arrives.

Print. Cut out with scissors . Place the parts together. . .

 . . . trace onto plywood or card.                                                                                                                                       

Third. How To Cut Pergola Ends.



Trace this classical shape onto each rafter.

If you wish you can half notch the rafter and the beam as shown.

This will keep your rafter ends in a neat line.

I recommend an overhang of 3 x rafter width.

 A rafter width of 6" would need a overhang of 3 x 6" = 18".

Cut along the pergola template shape using a jig saw. And sandpaper the cut edges. You can use a medium sandpaper. Followed by a finer sandpaper for the best finish.

The following examples of pergola end cuts  can be found in the UK. Someone in each case has learnt how to cut pergola ends and make their gardens beautiful.

  • The Hill, Hampstead, London

  • Peto's Pergola at West Dean, Chichester, West Sussex

  • Hunting Lodge, Warwick Castle Park

  • Lee Court, Wolfson College, Cambridge

Thanks for your help!! Much appreciated for sharing. I found some cool ideas which inspired me...one of my first outdoor structures.
