« Part 11: Final Touches Part 12 of Garden Gate III series no next part

Sure you can look through the rest of this blog, or do a search on the project page, but to make life a little easier here’s a summary of the project from finish to design. I was real happy with the way this gate turned out and, more importantly, so was my neighbor who paid for it.

I hope your taxes don’t go up after they reassess your property value.

Great job on this Tim. I missed the series, but I did go through them today, as I was looking for bent lamination projects. The look amazing and add a lot of character to the properties. The blog was very nicely pictured and presented too. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. I wish I had another customer or need to build one of these because they are simple and a lot of fun. socalwood… yes, I used loose tenons. I use the Mortise Pal to cut them which is very fast and accurate. I used pairs of tenons at each joint and it is really solid.

I keep thinking about variations on the theme like layering different woods and exposing the colors by carving grooves like Andy’s Art Boxes. Or just carving in some patterns and such. People like the brighter blues and greens but I want to experiment with gold’s and reds and silvers in the patina. Endless options… can’t turn it off.

socal… your work is way over the top. I love all of them, especially your doors and that last staircase is beyond masterful.
