My wife and I helped my sister-in-law and her husband build this gate for the garden in her back yard.
The posts, the header, and basic gate structure were made from treated lumber. The lettering, heart, leaves and the sunflower were made from cedar.
The posts have cross members dadoed into them at ground level and behind the arched gate header. I cut stems, leaves, petals and the sunflower center using my bandsaw, then we placed the gate on sawhorses and my wife and sister in law created the sunflower on the gate from the pre-cut components using crown staples and pin nails.
We had some wonderful food, maybe a beer or two, and a great time doing this.
Have a great day Lumberjocks.
