Very Nicely done.
I have been collecting pictures and ideas for a gate at the side of our home. Thought I had it narrowed down to 4 designs, well now make that 5. At my age (63) I only plan to make the Gate once. So it has to be the right one.I’m leaning towards a natural redwood panel fence and your gate has the appeal I favor. Gate and fence are a total of 12 ft. between house and garage.
Thanks for sharing.

That is a great gate!
The picture of raising the door panel on the table saw is very similar to what I have done for some furniture doors. I am wondering how you handled the curved part on the upper panels.
Thanks for posting.

That is a beautiful gate! I am curious also as to how you made the curved part on the panels.(And why did you paint it?!? ...to each, their own)

Very Classy! “Somebody Important Lives Here” or, “Someone with Good Taste Lives Here.” Nice.

Thanks for the compliments. The person with good taste must be my wife.

That is a great gate. Wow, you do really great work. I am new to making Mortise and Tennon joints and I saw your post of the jig you made. Do you happen to have detailed plans that you could share? I would love to make a jig like yours and be able to make mortise and tennon joints as smooth as the ones shown in the pictures of the gate.
