Cedar Gate I built last spring. Clear Red Cedar. Domino joinery with TimberPro finish. The one cool thing I tried was drawboring the domino’s. Worked great and I think helped with seasonal movement. Metalwork also by me. Finished with a patina and clear. Thanks for looking. Sako

Superb! Very nice work, I like the welding touch as well.

Very attractive.
Well done.

Lovely addition, sensation design. Actually the metal work is superb, how did you bend that rod?
Also I am not sure what you mean by drawboring the domino’s. ???
Seems you where lucky to find such nice cedar to work with.
Lovely Job
Kind Regards
Anthony

Thanks for all the great comments. I made a template from my sketchup model and printed it out to scale. Then I rolled the tube on tubing roller. Drawboring is an old technique of drilling a small hole in the sides of your mortise in this case 1/4”. Then you dry fit the tenon and mark the hole location on the tenon. Next you remove tenon and drill a hole slightly offset so that when you put the pieces back together the peg draws the M/T together. Clear as MUD.
Here is someone who actually knows what he is talking about.

Anthony, we are pretty fortunate here in the Pacific NW. The cedar comes from a local sawmill.

Have your say...
