Bill-- I noticed plywood is used a lot on frames like this, one on each side usually. I didn't use it because I didn't like how it looks, and I didn't want to cut all of them out of the sheet, and nail them all off. Too many! Tom

I drew up a 'diamond' joint of double 60 degree cuts tonight that I'd strength with a single or maybe double plywood gusset to simplify my design, but I love the elegant curvature of your joints.  I am guessing your frame spacing is 24 inches O.C.?

Bill-- Yes, a router and 4 jigs. (2 L.H. and 2 R.H.). I built different (but similar) frames a while back using a circular saw and a different style joint that works just as well, and would definitely use the saw method instead of a router if to do again. Using a router, I found out, was very labor intensive and costly compared to using a saw. --Tom

Tom,  What are you going to cover your greenhouse with?

Comment by Thom Mueller on March 11, 2012 at 9:47pm

Elizabeth-- The floor will be gravel.

Tom,  I noticed you did not build this structure on a foundation.  What are you going to use for the floor?
