Fence and Gate

This is a fence and gate I built on my grandparent’s property about two years ago. The fence was assembled from pre-fab eight-foot panels for time and cost efficiency. I modified one of the panels to create the gate. It was reinforced, cut to shape and hardware was added. I just wanted to post this to show how much nicer you can make something like this look with just a little bit of modification. It was finished with a spray-on redwood stain and sealer and is holding up fine.

-- Happy woodworking!

Now being a salesman for a large fencing company, was something done to the back side of the lattice to make it private?

We don’t even sell that stuff anymore. Supplier was getting to junky and too expensive. We make our own now.

Great job Blake! I like to see a person think outside the box.

I like the modification on the panels and the color of the stained wood. I turned out very nicely.
