Cedar Gate & Fence

This project is not completely finished but this gate & panels of the first stage are almost done so it might fit this category.

The Gate & panels are 8’ high & are more than 1 7/8” thick red cedar.
There will be keyed locks so we can gain access from both sides.

Because of the height I made a small peep door in the same style as the gate with a homemade teak spring loaded latch.
The small peeping door is camouflaged from the road side by a large plasma cut tree.

I included some sketchUp drawings to show the finished project.

Very creative and well executed. I especially like the design for the drive gates. I am starting a similar project, and you’ve given me some good ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Handsome gate, great design and workmanship. Re the keyed locks, how much shrinkage/expansion did you plan for?

Nice gate and fence.

Did you apply any type of finish, stain, or preservative to the wood?

Thanks buckeyedudes

I used Sikkens for the final coat.
The only problem with a product like Sikkens is it does have a film built coating that is harder to renew when it starts to chip unlike oil.
