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 because the neighbors cats like to lay in front and tease her.they know she cant get them but she never figured that out-lol.

Nice gate,  should handle the cali weather well.  Juice er up every once in a while.
I wish you could have got it a little straighter though,  I know you have a level?
House looks a little crooked too.  Oh yeah,  your on the fault line,  never mind   hahahaha

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Larry beautiful gate. Very Cali looking. I am wondering though if you did the pics during an earthquake? Or maybe had some jars of Vino before you found the camera, things do have a definite lean going on.
