BRACES on the CAD Model
Eight of these braces are required for the sides of the pergola and attach to the posts and 6×6 beams.
This process was repeated for the larger braces that are secured to the posts and rafters.
Now all the temporary bracing is removed.
The three louvers, or more if needed, are made from 2×4 stock. The pergola design called for them to be simply cut to length then chamfered. They are positioned over the rafters and screwed in place.
And that is it. The curved pergola is done. Let me know what you think by dropping a note in the comment section. I try to reply to as many questions as I can.

Pictures after 5 Years
Here’s some pictures taken last November to show how the pergola design has aged. I think it’s holding up very well. It’s the worse time of year for any flattering photos but maybe that’s okay.
There’s a long crack in one beam but that’s all I could find of any significance.
And that’s all. Thanks!
