Side gate made from redwood (2×6’s). This was a long over due project. Still need to do some touch up painting; several scratches from the installation.

Great gate!

I have a question though; why paint such beautiful wood as redwood?

What are the construction details? Is this a cope+stick with panels? Or did you edge-joint the 2×6es into one big slab and decorate it?

ralbuck; I painted the gate to match another gate on the opposite side. Also prevents the wood from looking dark and dirty with age. Constructed with rails and stiles; joined with loose tenons. Flat panels are held in place by the molding.
