Very Nicely done.

I have been collecting pictures and ideas for a gate at the side of our home. Thought I had it narrowed down to 4 designs, well now make that 5. At my age (63) I only plan to make the Gate once. So it has to be the right one.
I’m leaning towards a natural redwood panel fence and your gate has the appeal I favor. Gate and fence are a total of 12 ft. between house and garage.

Thanks for sharing.

That is a great gate!

The picture of raising the door panel on the table saw is very similar to what I have done for some furniture doors. I am wondering how you handled the curved part on the upper panels.

Thanks for posting.

That is a beautiful gate! I am curious also as to how you made the curved part on the panels.
(And why did you paint it?!? each, their own)

Looks great – the painted surface really makes it pop!

Very Classy! “Somebody Important Lives Here” or, “Someone with Good Taste Lives Here.” Nice.

That is a great gate. Wow, you do really great work. I am new to making Mortise and Tennon joints and I saw your post of the jig you made. Do you happen to have detailed plans that you could share? I would love to make a jig like yours and be able to make mortise and tennon joints as smooth as the ones shown in the pictures of the gate.

Thanks …mike…
