This is a new yard gate that goes between my shop and the back yard. A bit of a whimsical piece.

question about your router jigs; i see where the pins line up, and where the cutout for the semi-circle is and all. Can you explain why you needed the semi-circular cut-outs in the jig?

P.S. i’m not asking, but it would be awesome to see your shop someday. i really like your work as well as articles in PW and books.

I love it. I just built a couple of “artistic” garden gates …...... but not quite this imaginative.
Well done. We need more whimsy in the world.

The semi-circle helped register the jig on the 1st route (lines up with the circular hole). With that 1st route, I drilled the holes for the locating pins. The second routing template was then located precisely with the pins.

I can feel the pain. Let’s spend 10 times the time to fabricate something we can actually enjoy. WELLDONE
