I didn’t really think to take any construction pictures of this project for some reason.

It is made of western red cedar 2×6 for the frame and rough 1×6 for the ship lapped panel. The 2×6 I just cut to 5” wide. I originally planned to mill it, but they turned out to be straight enough to work so I left as is.

The panel I ran the planks through the planer, cut a rabbit to match the groove in the rails and styles and cut the ship lap.

All three rails have wedged tenons and gorilla glue. The upper insert is an ornamental iron insert I fabricated.

Thanks for looking!

Very nicely done—I can’t decided whether the ornamental iron finishes the gate or the gate acts to frame and show off the ornamental iron. I lean to the latter, but either way it is an attractive project.
