Honeycomb Trellis for raised garden bed

I built a raised garden bed for fruit/veggies and decided to do a permanent trellis for my future tomatoes instead of using the cages.
I used 1x4x8 cedar planks (this was the cheapest way I found) so I could have the variation in colors. I cut the planks in half with my table saw, then used my miter saw on a 30* to cut 6 1/2” (short side) pieces. Nail gun to make SEVERAL hexagons (4 nails at each joint). Then 2 coats of water sealer and I loved how the colors popped when it was wet so I added 2 coats on shiny polyurathan.... but I honestly don’t think it did anything. I did want a more random design but it wasn’t sturdy enough to do that. Maybe if I had used screws instead of nails, but I’m still very pleased with the end result.
