But decorations and ornaments will only work when

they are properly made". 

Christopher Alexander - Architect

You may have spent hours making your own pergola.

Don't spoil it with too plain a finish to the pergola rafter tails - the one place that can make a world of difference. "The icing on the cake!"

Now carefully cut along the shape using a jig saw. Don't forget to sandpaper the cut edges. First use a medium sandpaper followed by a finer sandpaper for the best effect.

A Sample of 942 Pergola Width Requests

were put  in a graph - below - so you can see which are the most popular sizes. 80% of all requests came from the US and 12% came from Canada.

Notice that there are two results for 6" which have to be added together. [112 + 49 = 161]

Same for 9" [4 + 11 =15].

The Percentage column only relates to the particular box [A, B or C] and may not be relevant for you.

6" is clearly the most popular width followed by 5.5", 7.5" and 8".

The larger pergola widths from 9" to 11" are not so popular although 11" and 10" are the front runners here.
