David and Joe are downstairs planning the layout for the cork ceiling…
There was math…
What does it all mean?
I have no idea.

Hi, I wound up on your blog while searching for copper trellises, saw yours under “trellis jealous” and now think I’ll copy your idea. What kind of end caps did you use to secure/tie the steel wire to the pipe and what is the best tool to cut the wire? Also, are there any tricks/tips for drilling through copper pipe (can you use a regular or masonry/tapcon drillbit)? Thanks!
Hi! Thanks for the question, sorry it took a while to get back to you.
The wire has matching ferrules that crimp on that are made of soft aluminum. They hold the wire from pulling through the pipes.
There is probably a dedicated crimping and cutting tool but I just used needle-nose pliers for the crimping and by-pass cutters (cut-anything scissors like EMTs use) for the cutting.
A regular twist bit will drill the copper pipe, it’s pretty soft. Make a little dimple with a nail where you want to drill so the bit doesn’t wander around on you.
Have fun with your project!
