  1. Cedar Gate

    Finally a project that wasn't something for the shop. My wife insisted that a shed be placed to where she could not see it. Which meant on the side of our house where there was no access. So we had to put an opening in the wall and put a gate in. The gate is made form inland, western red cedar...
  2. Outdoor Cypress Gate

    Here is my most recent project. It is a solid cypress gate made out of 8/4 cypress and 3/4 tongue and groove cypress for the panel finished with a solid stain. We modified the original design to incorporate the previous gate's materials which are the cedar caps for the door and jamb which are...
  3. Gate for Japanese style fence

    Just installed a gate I designed and made for the Japanese style fence at our house in Kansas City. I am new to woodworking and very much a novice when it comes to using my table saw. I had some two by four fir lumber which I ripped to one by two for the frame. Used lap joints at the corners and...
  4. Gas Tanks Fence

    For a while I knew some protection was needed on the gas tanks, so last summer I decided to start building a fence/gate to reduce any potencial danger. I made the frame out of pallet wood, (its a good way to recycle and save money) and gave it a mahogany finish to protect from the elements and...
  5. Dog gate

    Just finished this gate to keep the dogs off the furniture and carpet that is yet to be installed. Pretty basic design held shut with rare earth magnets.
  6. Safety Gate

    As my one year old daughter found the joy of climbing the stairs at home, I had to hurry up and finish a safety gate - a project on my task list since she was born. The design process took me a while. Besides the regular need to meet the taste of my dear customers - family, I had to solve some...
  7. New gate built to customer

    Have just delivered this gate to a customer, made of white oak. Coated with ultra matt lacquer.
  8. Teak gate

    The frame is redwood and the rest is made of a mystery wood that was mixed in with a truck load of ipe decking I bought from a guy on craigslist. It could be Mangaris but I'm not sure.
  9. Rustic Baby Gate

    Family member didn't want a store bought baby gate. They wanted something that would match the style of their home. I made this out of carsiding and 1×4 pine. I drilled through holes on the sides to run heavy duty zip ties around the railing posts. It works well but I wouldn't recommend this...
  10. stair gates

    These three gates were made to function as barriers for a small child and pets. The wood is ash which I chose to colour and match to the floor and banisters. I relied heavily on my love for art deco design to create a look that was unique but didn't stand out inside the house, instead, the...
  11. Indoor Gate

    My wife raises AKC Toy Pomeranians and likes to keep them in certain areas of the house. She came to me with that one question that manipulates woodworkers, "Can you build me a gate, or should I buy one?" What could I do but accept the challenge. The gate is made out of Old, straight grained...
  12. Catholic Headboard

    This is a 8ft headboard made of mahogany with a walnut stain. The catholic gate was provided by the customer. I welded the gate together and welded studs on the sides then I had to oxide my welds and spray a lacquer clear on all the metal to preserve the rustic element. I then built a jig to...
  13. Garden Gate

    Garden Gate made with spanish cedar and Cumaru. If I had it to do over I would have turned pegs on each bar so I didn't have to cut mortises on each one. The top was finished with roundover bit on router table, top and bottom edges.
  14. My first attempt

    Hey out there, I am new to the woodworking world. Me and wife recently moved from Portland, OR to Waxhaw, NC and moved in with her father. We have a German Shepherd that he didn't want in the second level of the house, so my first woodworking project is this gate. It's not pretty but it was my...
  15. Bookcase/Gate for Wide Opening Between Rooms

    We have a wide opening between the kitchen area and family room in our home. Sometimes we want our dogs to stay in one of those areas. When we moved in a few years ago we put in a wide baby gate but the dogs finally wiped it out trying to go through the narrow opening side by side too many...
  16. Garden Gate

    I enjoy gardening. This is a wooden gate I made out of pallet wood. I cut out three bee silhouettes for a design. The trim is the same wood with stain.
  17. Garden Gate

    We have a small deck between our shed and house and my wife wanted a nice gate between the lattice work railing. I came up with this little gate. The gate measures 54" H X 36" W X 1-1/2" D I used all pressure treated wood on this project. I used mortise and tendon joinery and the glued i used...
  18. English 5 Bar Gate With Mods

    My wife is English (by birth) and the English have a thing for 5 bar wooden gates. This 14 ft Western Red Cedar gate is based on these English gates but I used a few ideas I gleaned from reading guys like Jim Tolpin and a few ideas of my own. The second pix shows the intersection of the...

  20. Back Yard Renovation

    My wife and I purchased our home last fall and while the interior of the house was completely remodeled, the yard was in dire need of some TLC. Its a smaller city lot that came with a cracked (but structurally sound) concrete patio, a chain-link fence and a poorly graded & uneven weed patch for...
