Securing the metal post supports.Measure the position of the posts by following steps 1 through 3 in this wooden arch kit tutorial. Hammer the posts in.Continue using a level and checking that the post supports remain vertical.
Erect the frame.Insert the posts into the supports, making sure the notches at the top all run in the direction that the beams will lie.
Nail the beams to the posts.Make sure the beams are positioned correctly (standing above the post tops and with overhangs even on both sides) then nail them to the posts. Strengthen and steady the pergola.Nail a wooden brace into each top corner between post and beam.
Achieve a traditional look by choosing beams with shaped ends; a contemporary style is accomplished with beams that have square ends.
