So, the old ugly driveway gave in after some strong winds. I’ve been planning on replacing it with something nice for about five years. I guess the time is now.
I drew up some design ideas in Sketchup and my wife and I agreed on a design. I took a lot of inspiration from English driveway gates. It will be built of knotty cedar to maintain a rustic look, keeping in line with the house. The space below the arch will be some custom welded iron work (my father-in-law is quite the expert).
The frame stock will be 2-1/8 inch thick. The joints will we traditional mortise and tenon with drawbore. I’m hopeful to have this finished in a month….......
Hope u enjoy following along.
