  1. Gate

    I got the inspiration for this project via the "Patio Gate" project done by BenI back in 2013. Last fall we had our old gate break-actual post rotted. Gate was still good but I never liked the construction. It took awhile to find the right design-I was going to just settle and buy a $150 Home...
  2. Doggy Gate

    We have just started raising a guide-dog puppy, so we needed a way of keeping her in or out of the kitchen. I made this gate, ironically enough, from an incense cedar fence pailing (my current "exotic" wood of choice). Once again all ripped and "thickness planed" on the table saw. All mortise...
  3. Cedar Gate with Arc Top

    This is a gate made of clear grade western red cedar. It is a first for me as it was my first non-friend/relative client. It was quite a learning and growing experience for me. If only it were as simple as woodworking. The Gate went together beautifully, all M&T joints on the frame and T&G on...
  4. Second gate using frame method

    This is my second gate project using a frame approach. The first (the last picture) ran the slate with spacing vertically. This one runs the slates on a 45 degree angle with no spacing and, I think, provides its own bracing. On one side I did add another brace. The first picture is taken before...
  5. Garden Gate

    I finished the gate for my vegetable garden. Link to lower gate "here": http://lumberjocks.com/projects/372689#comments
  6. Driveway Gate

    My latest project was a gate for my driveway. It's been on the list, and I was hoping to wait until better weather in the late Spring, but it had gotten so bad, something needed to be done right away. The old gate was probably 20 years old (my grandpa built it back when he first bought the...
  7. Fence Gate

    When I bought my house in May of this year, the fence was in pretty good shape except for one of the gates. It was basically just a panel of wood propped up in the opening; the hinges were all useless and the latch couldn't even close. Upon closer inspection, I noticed a few major flaws in the...
  8. Homemade "Carriage House" garage doors.

    You can read the full story at the link below, but here's the short version: Bought a house. Had cheap tin garage doors I couldn't do anything with. Came up with a plan to make something beautiful instead. Once I determined what I was after was a set of old-fashioned "carriage house" doors...
  9. My First Gate Project

    This is my first attempt at making a gate of any kind. The gate was make of redwood and finished with a cedar tone fence and deck stain/finish that I picked up at HD. This project was challenging and there are many things I would differently, but all in all, I'm pretty satisfied with how it...
  10. Garden Gate

    Gate I constructed from Pressure treated pine. I like that the gate frames the garden before you enter. It took four tries to make the arch. The heavy duty hinges aren't too attractive but were necassary to support the very heavy gate. It is plumb and square. The camera creates some distortion.
  11. Stairway Gate

    On a recent visit to my daughter, son-in-law, and our twin grandchildren, I was asked to build a gate to protect the top of the stairs leading to the lower part of the house. They have a new dog in the house that they want to keep upstairs, so the cats can live in peace downstairs. A new...
  12. Baby Gate from White Ash

    I made this back in April when my son started moving around, and we wanted to make sure his movements are only horizontal and not vertical. I actually wanted to avoid having to build something, since I have more than enough projects that need to be done around the house. We looked at several...
  13. patio trellis enclosure

    fun garden project to provide some patio privacy. couldn't find a cheap post hole digger, so hand dug the post holes, erected 6×6 posts, bandsaw cut the post caps, used 2×6 post ties, and ripped down treated stock to 1.25×2 for lattice work. lots of screws. just planted a bunch of...
  14. Garden gate made using reclaimed wood

    Order was from wife and delivered very quickly :) Ali wood used in this Project is reclaimed.
  15. Cedar Gates

    A little late posting this one. Our daughter ( 18 months old) developed a fascination with the front yard this summer and was not content keeping to the backyard where her mom could keep an eye on her while gardening. What better excuse for a fun little project than to keep my little princess...
  16. Craftsman style side fence & gate

    Some projects, you decide when to start them. Some decide for you. A few months ago, the old side gate (last photo) fell down. It was time for a new one. I didn't want to use pressure treated, or vinyl, so I went with cedar. I also didn't want to coat it, or stain it, or water seal it and have...
  17. Garden Gate

    This is my garden gate that i made this weekend out of some pallets that i got my hands on. The whole thing is made from pallet wood.
  18. Kitchen Gate v2

    I originally made a gate for this location out of 1x pine, but it didn't hold up very well to the constant use this location gets. The frame of this one is made of 2×4's with 1x salvaged from the first version as the spindles. I justified the purchase of a roundover bit for the router with...
  19. Custom Sliding Baby Gate

    I had to build this gate so that it would fit beside the cabinet on the right when folded, under the curtains and allow the cats to go through. It's made out of wood I salvaged from a skid in the driveway. The cat door is plex bought at Lowes sandwiched in a piece of wood held in place with...
  20. Modular Dog Gate

    We call it the Schnauzer Area Denial System. Keeps Cooper out of the dining room and, more importantly, off the nice rug in there. I've got a couple others in the house made with different numbers of panels to deny doggy access to selected areas. Cheap Menards Pine with Minwax Water-Borne...
