Just beautiful Bob. And the little lizard detail is terrific. These are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

That's very clever. Looks great too. I like how it doesn't block off the path completely because you can see through the gate.

Great design and well executed! I think I need to see them in person though. ROAD TRIP!

I'm with Charlie, I think they'd look better in person.

Great looking gates. What kind of finish did you put on them?

Thanks for the kind comments all. The finish is Cabot's Australian timber oil. I built the 1st gate (the smaller one) about a year before the main gate. After shipping the main gates my brother asked if I would fly out and install them (tough duty I know). While I was out there I wiped down the 1st gate with the timber oil and it looked better than when I 1st completed it. Take a look at http://www.ponohouse.com/ and you'll see where I got the inspiration for the raw cedar and copper. The house columns are all raw Ohia and all the gutters are copper.

See the additional photo. You can see where the idea for the lizard detail came from…lots of these little guys roaming around.

Saw a little guy like that in Bermuda. Nice touch!

When's the open house tour?

Love the gates, and that house is awesome, too! I was stationed in Hawai'i for 3 years and managed to get over to Maui only once. Sure would love to go back!

basement stairs - good idea (except that we put a gate on it to keep toddlers safe and I'm not sure if this would be as effective)...

but you got me thinking-- I never considered INSIDE before!! Wheels are turning..
