Sunrise design garden gate the sun rays in this gate have skewed tenons and all had to be cut by hand the top rail was cut to shape fron 5” x 2” with a band saw then a belt sander was used to remove saw cuts. The gate was planked with 5/8” thick T&G boards, 3” x 2” was used for the middle rail and stiles. I am not responsible for the gate posts i would have used planed timber and a least got them plumb and straight

This is a beautiful gate. I have little experience with mortise and tenon joints, but I can see how those would be tricky. Is it cedar?

Very nice. I like the way the center boards don’t go into a rail at the bottom to keep it from being a rain collector and rot out.

I was just thinking we don’t have near enough “outdoor” projects, maybe b/c they’re so $%*@$# expensive? I don’t know. I bet this thing was a bear to heft into place though! Really appreciate your attention to detail on this one of a kind gate
