Lattice From Lathe
Last year we were overrun by morning glory vines. This year we're going to train them on lattice and hopefully keep them from strangling our plants. We have a lot of projects going on this year so we decided to go as inexpensive as possible with this one. We picked up bundles of lathe for about $12 each bundle. I was able to make 2 3x3 sections from each bundle. With some glue and Brad nails and a saw, this should be an easy project.

How to do this project
Figure out your layout. I used this block as a spacer. Beware that the lathe isn't perfect wood. Some slats aren't straight but for our purposes we didn't care.
Nail using brads. For extra strength you can brads and glue. I used a PowerShot brand stapler/nailer and it worked great. 9/16" brads were just long enough.
