Hi! Welcome back to Expert Village and my name is Charlie Folkman. Today we are going to continue building our gazebo. So now that we have our first piece installed, we are going to go ahead and install the second one. The key to this is that when you install it you want to make sure that your lattice work all runs the same way so that it looks like one fluent piece. You are going to want them to come together really nicely, just kind of like that and then you are going to do the same thing we did on this piece. Just put a couple of screws in this end, go to the other end pull it tight and put a couple of screws in there. So now that we have all of our lattice attached, you can see that we have some of this access overhang here. Now this is from where we were cutting it and using the base as a template and you don't want to knick the base. So you just cut a little outside. The easiest way to fix this is if you have a jigsaw, you can just run through with a jigsaw or a reciprocating saw. If you don't have any of those, you can just take your skill saw and just cut off little edges and that will take care of that.
