« Part 6: The Outer Laminates Part 7 of Garden Gate III series Part 8: Panel Fit »

On my first gate the panel was held in place with stays based on the David Marks project. The second gate used rabbet like a picture frame. For this project I decided to go back to the stays. They are not hard to make as you can use the gate itself as a form. While I was prepping the stock for the outer laminates I made an extra set for the inner laminates. The only trick is the measure the length of the inner arch. I used a flex tape, but could have used a string or other flexible item and used that to measure. Since the inner laminate sits between two 3/4” stiles, you’ve got 1 1/2” to work with. I cut these about 1/2” short to have some play on both ends. Again the glue up is pretty straighforward, just like cutting boards or any other lamination. Just be sure not to glue the top of the lamination so it doesn’t accidentally get glued to the arch.

Wow, thanks Brian. Nothing like your stuff though. That tea cart is still the state of the art.
