Patio Gate

We got a dog several months ago and realized that we should replace our broken patio gate so she can’t run out from the house and make it all the way to the street. I somewhat followed the design of the old gate but made the new one taller since she’s a good jumper and put in a new post on the latch side since the old one had rotted away.

I used red cedar for all of it, routed a roundover with bead on most of the edges to clean up the look and finished it with 3 coats of General Finishes Outdoor Oil.

Thanks for taking a look!

Pretty and well made gate, like the look of red cedar. It will serve you well for a long time. Great job!
