I made the frames from 1/2 conduit. 
Very sturdy.

tshred, I love the art design when you putt up the trellis


I really went into a creative mode building these. 
There are things I'd do a little different but for the first time it's worked out well I think.

thanks

I noticed your beds are elevated.  What is the depth of each bed?  What do you use for the bottom liner?  How do you handle drainage from that height off the ground?  Thanks for the good photo's.  I have a conduit trelis I made as well, you'll see posted later this season. 

Thank you,

Here's a thread as I built them.

The water drains out pretty fast. I may have to plug a few holes. They are 1" and covered by landscape cloth.

I use 54" wide tulle because it just reaches from side to side on a 4x4 bed. two 10 ft 1/2" pvc arches close to the sides of the bed frame.  11ft of tulle goes over the arch.   5 1/2 ft will cover one end and I usually use the ends as my access to the beds.    seven 1" binder clips PER END and clip both the end pieces and the arch pieces to the pvc.  I can't open the side with the trellis against it.  tulle comes in 54 and 108" width.  after the climbing plants get tall enough to need the trellis,  I arch the pvc to the 3 ft mark leaving a 4 square strip open for the trellis plants.  Remember to remove the tulle for plants that need insect pollination.
