First… after seeing Trifern’s secrets on dyeing I wonder how a door would look? Guess I’ll have to give it a try. Anyway, here’s the gate with several coats of outdoor oil over some redwood stain. The colors in the photo are pretty accurate. The top picture gives a good comparison of the treated and untreated copper panel.
Once the gate is hung I will post a final blog on this series with photos and some specifications and tips I learned on this project. And I will post some photos on the projects tab. Hope you enjoyed this series as much as I’ve enjoyed documenting it. I also hope some other LJs build some of these so I can compare finishes and such.
Here’s a shot of the back.
