A Tuteur for the Garden

A tuteur can be used to provide a vertical accent to a young landscape, a support for a small vine, or, as in this case, a haunt for the local guardian spirit. A tuteur can be built with copper pipe, branches or in this case with recycled bits of a deck that I had removed. I ripped the boards to size on my table saw. Each board was ripped to produce 1.5 x 1.5" boards of varied lengths. I used a finish nail gun to attach them to one another. The tuteur took less than an afternoon to complete. The completed height of this tuteur is about 7 feet, the base covers 2' x 2'.
