But before you move the arch into place, screw on a temporary 2x4 "" 30 in. from the post bottoms. Wedge shims under the stretcher until the header is level, then plumb and brace the posts. Then round up a helper or two and set the posts into the holes. Patiently level and plumb the arch, using stakes and 2x4s to brace it. Be careful not to nudge the posts out of position as you fill the holes with concrete. Let the concrete harden for at least four hours before you finish the wood. We brushed on two coats of clear penetrating wood finish to deepen the color of the wood and repel moisture.
