Yeah I was never crazy about pergolas either but when I started thinking about a cantilevered one, it got the juices flowing. It’s pretty simple construction. The whole point is to have a place to grow grapes overhead. In the few years between grapes and today, having something nice to look at will be good. Shade and fruit. I can’t wait.

I never thought about using the circular saw. See? This is why I posted the question. Now I don’t have to buy anything. And you’re right about it not really being fine woodworking, but I do want the angle of the cut to line up and fit nicely into the post. That’s why I figured a hand saw might be easier or faster.
