This Gate was my first double There are a few photos of me laying it out on garage floor to get exact measurements. It had to fit between two 6×6 post and have nice even tolerances on the openings. These doors weighed a ton. The opening was about 10’ . This door was built from spruce that my father-in-law had laying around that was facia at one time. The 1x lumber in the center was some poplar base that I milled .All the material for this door was recycled. My father-in-law is a general contractor ,so he has a good supply of misc lumber laying around. My next project is going the be a double with a arch top that will finally be at my house. My next project I will show is one I did for my next door neighbor that is a single that looks like one of the doors from above. The coolest part of that door was the material I used was all fence pickets and It didn’t cost much in material at all. I will post those soon

Thank you all for the feedback. These gates are fun to build and they are a great excuse for the wife to pick up new tools .

Have your say...
