  1. Baby Gate / Pet Gate

    I built this and it was easy. Keeps baby in and pets out. You can make it several ways but i used rail and stile… you can see the groove where there arent vertical slats but who cares its temporary. But I wanted something that matched the house, not some cheap walmart thingy. Quick was key. Its...
  2. Its a Trash Gate !

    Well this was my first commisioned work - I say that tongue in cheek as it was for my parents… But, it still counts :D Just a simple swing gate for the side of their house where the trash bins are. The old one was some 30yrs old and looked like it! Nothing too fancy here, started out a low...
  3. Side yard gate

    Follow up to a house that I remodeled. Fence boards and gate panels from redwood board & batten siding from an old garage that I took down. There were (still are) lead pellets embedded in the wood, guessing from kid's target practice. Gate frame is from redwood rafters salvaged from carport on...
  4. Driveway fence and gate

    Wanted a fence across my driveway for privacy, with a person size gate, and the ability to use the whole width of the driveway if needed. Came up an idea to build a couple of sections on plastic furniture dollies so they could be moved when needed. To ensure that the sections don't tip over, I...
  5. Old Tools.....New Life

    This is a gate I built for my daughter. Kind of a rustic approach. All cedar. Mortise and tenon joints (glued and screwed). No finish to allow the cedar to age naturally like the tools. Stout hinges from the box store. Most are old tools that I needed to retire and some were found at...
  6. garden gate

    I have no idea where I got this design.
  7. Garden fence and gate

    My wife asked me to put a fence around our herb garden. The cedar panels are carved and stained.
  8. Redwood Gate

    Our one year old German Shorthaired Pointer puppy was threatening to jump our old gate so I used some salvaged redwood fence boards to build a new one. I ripped the old boards down to 2 1/2" wide and planed both sides to net 9/16". Then I ran it by tongue and groove cutters on my router table...

    yard gate made from african mahogany.4/4 frame with 1/2" slats that are t&g floating in the frame to allow for expansion.assembled with dominos,tite bond 3 glue.finish was redwood tint penofin to enhance the color.the old gate had a hole for the beagle to look out but i left it out on this one...
  10. Crowned Gate and Fence

    Built a new fence and gate for our back patio. Treated pine, all full 1" thick. Made a sled to feed the fence caps through the planer at an angle to put a crown on them for water runnoff. Gate is mortise and tenon pickets into top and bottom rails so it's very rigid against sagging. Fence is...
  11. Dog retaining Gate

    My son needed some way to keep his dogs in the kitchen/diner area overnight - away from their new suites in the lounge. He asked me if I could design and make something suitable. I eventually came up with a design (pic 5) which he liked, and that and the finished version are shown alongside...
  12. Garden Gate

    The overall dimensions are 48 wide and at the highest point 42. It was a day project just because I had to plane all the boards since this was made from all recycled material. Hope it will keep my niece's kids in the yard.
  13. Driveway Gate Using "EASY" 4X4 Anchors

    A friend of ours bought a motorcycle this summer and asked me to put a gate across her open driveway. She already had a fence around the yard, but her driveway had nothing. I used a gate frame from my local Home Depot to make the 8 foot gate. I used cedar for the gate and the side panels...
  14. Dust collection, Gates

    I cant remember which book I got this idea from. Its a really easy and nice setup for building blast gates. Those cheap little black ones are junk, clog easily, and pretty expensive. All 1/4" ply, held together with some small bolts. Circle cut 2 holes just a bit larger than the pvc coupler...
  15. Cedar Arch with Gate

    It's an arch with a gate! The arch is made from 10 layers of cedar 5/16" x 3 1/2" glued up with polyurethane glue. The inside radius of the arch is 60" making for a five foot wide gate. The arch is coated with polyester resin (fiberglass resin without the glass matting) to keep it looking...
  16. Redwood Gate

    Though not too fancy this was an important project in my development and experience with my tools. I am proud that I finished this from start to finish in one day as opposed to my other projects that I have started and piddled with leaving weeks in between. Also this was the most I had used my...
  17. Garden Gates and Arbor

    I built these gates and arbor 8 years ago with my daughter as part of a larger project to build a water garden she designed (she was 13 at the time, precocious little bugger). It's amazing how well they have held up…they are just plain white pine. Strangely enough the folks at Sunset books have...
  18. Child safety / garden gate from scrap wood

    This is my first project and i am quite happy with the job it does. The intention was to prevent little monsters running down stairs to the road whenever they want. The gate and fixing mechanism was built using scrap wood laying around. Gate is opened by lifting up, quite lightweight for us to...
  19. baby / dog gates

    Ok, we don't have any children, but we do have two small dog-like critters. The goal was to keep them out of the rooms with carpet so I made these dog-gates. Didn't take too long and looks better than the plastic ones you buy at the stores. Bonus, you can simply step over them as well.
  20. Gate for Nephew's Home

    My nephew & niece-in-law built a new home about a year ago. This fall, they welcomed the arrival of their first child / daughter, which brought about concern with the open staircase in their home. The staircase leads from their foyer to the basement. Since my nephew lives about 10 hours away...
