The overall dimensions are 48 wide and at the highest point 42. It was a day project just because I had to plane all the boards since this was made from all recycled material. Hope it will keep my niece’s kids in the yard.

You have a good eye – real nice looking gate – I’m sure it’ll dress up the garden nicely

Pat, the gate looks pleasing to the eye and sturdy enough to keep the kids from roaming free.

best of all its recycled material, I hope you picked it up for free?

Thanks guys and Sheila, or do you consider yourself just one of the guys LOL.

The material was free David and its time to start looking for more the supply is really starting to dwindle.

Next on the to do list is an easel for my son’s girlfriend. Nothing super complicated and large as it has to fit into a small apartment.

Appreciate the responses. And views.

I suppose that I am considered one of the ‘guys’! ;) (And I take that as a compliment!) It is great to use wood like this that would otherwise be used as firewood or just left to rot. Great job again!

Pat, you’d love living near me…. there is a Recycle place near me that has literally TONS of pallet wood! They grind it up for mulch and stain it different colors, but they often let me pick out what I want/need first. Or if they get some of the larger 5/4 pallet boards, they stick those to the side for me. Allows me to do a lot of different projects.

Keep up the awesome work!!!

@Sheila thats exactly how I meant it!!

Mark, if I remember right you and I talked about the fluorescent lights you used in your shop from the same recyclers. The material I used was tongue and groove wall paneling. I think if I want to keep using recycled material I need to get a metal detector.

Yes, you need to use that on any recycled wood. Even older trees we cut down, we’ve found nails and old fencing embedded. Sadly, one nail ruins a set of planer blades. So yes, get yourself a metal detector. It will pay for itself in no time!
