This is my first Instructable and I look forward to all of your comments.

I wanted to add a garden pagoda to our bamboo garden but was amazed by how much they cost.

I decided to make my own for under $25.

Step 1: Collect Your Parts

Here's what you need to make one just like mine but I would encourage you to be creative and and experiment on your own. When you're done it will stand about 35" tall.

2 16"x16" square pewter stepping stones

4 4"x4"x4" wood (pressure treated may last longer)

1 12"x12" grey stepping stone

1 6"x8"x8" concrete half cinder block

1 8"x8"x8" concrete half cinder block

1 16"x24" slate patio stone

1 9"x12" tumbled paver

1 6"x6" tumbled paver

6 Roundish rocks (found in my front yard)

With the exception of the 4x4 pieces of wood that I had left over from the deconstruction of a pallet, all of these items were purchased at a big box home improvement store. I'm sure you'll recognize the one. I actually built the pagoda on the cart inside the store to see what it would look like before I brought it home.

Step 2:

Decide where you want to put your pagoda and set the first 16"x16" square pewter stepping stone. Use a level to make sure it is level. If it is not, your pagoda may not be stable when you get to the last step and may lean.

Now it's just a matter of stacking the parts.

Here's the order from bottom to top.

16"x16" square pewter stepping stone. (This is the one that needs to be level.)

4 4"x4"x4" wood

12"x12" grey stepping stone

6"x8"x8" concrete half cinder block

16"x16" square pewter stepping stone

8"x8"x8" concrete half cinder block

16"x24" slate patio stone

9"x12" tumbled paver

6"x6" tumbled paver

large rock

smaller rock

1 smaller rock on each corner of the roof

Thanks for looking and good luck!
