Name: Obelisk from 1/2" pipe with Honeysuckle
Posted by: Yard Lady
Location: North Attleborough, MA
Info: I joined the two pieces at the top by flattening small areas of the pipe and using a brass screw, lock washer and nut. It's on a raised bed with a short-growing (8') honeysuckle. (That pipe is for future irrigation.) Funny thing, the two 90 degree bends were actually harder than the arbor. I had to use bending springs inside the pipe to keep it from kinking. I cut off the flare at the end of the spring, affixed a string, and oiled it. It slipped out quite easily each time and the bends are very smooth.
