Looks great. I like the wedges in the tenons – practical and will look good. That must be one heavy gate! What type of finish are you going to apply?

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.

jjempson….....LOL …...that has nothing to do with how your look is….....LOL
the most dangerus person I ever had worked with in a shop was in all other thing one of the sharpest
people I ever had heard of he cuold tell down to the dot how it shuold bee done
from food recepies to how you disable and throw the engine together again over to
how you build a skyscraber or the golden gate
but let him loose on his own whas worse than invite Stan laurel and Oliver Hardy in a shop
He realy , realy wanted to help and use his hands but I just had to tell him that he was a great
guy and a great highschool teacher but doing manuel work just ain´t him and he was too dangerus to have around , sadly he got angry on me (still is) and I lost a freind but he got the message and his wife
send me a big box of expensive cookies (she makes them) every year on the date I safed ther merrige
and proppely a life or two thats what she said and I agree with her ( I stiil want the cokkies ) :-)
still wonder how he got relative unheart thrue all those years before I told him to stop

Take care
Dennis

Edit: I don´t know that finish but consider one that is waterbased and safe for the children to bite on
