CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #11

Prowell’s arrangement of the ancient Chevron Pattern–a design pattern that has appeared on works of unearthed pottery as early as 1800 B.C.

A few modifying lines and we have a wood gate design with an Art Deco motif that might be suited for the lobby of the Rockefeller Center or Chicago’s Tribune Building or any of those phenomenal buildings and their elevator lobbies rising like a flourishing crop all over the country between 1921 and 1935. A very very short reign, given the lasting affect on the design world in the succeeding 80+ years.
So we have a combination of one of the globes oldest forms of aesthetic patterning, blended with one of the modern world’s most influential periods to arrive at, well . . . at something intriguing.

* It should be noted that custom wood garden gate #11 is the only examples where the vertical stiles and horizontal rails are not a standardized 5-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. Why? Because there is such a network of joints within the body of the gate and because each of these joints contributes to the structural integrity of the whole, we do not rely so heavily on the primary tenons of the gate frame itself.

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #11-3

St Huberts, NY

The Ausable Club, nestled in Adirondack Park, was founded in 1878 as a 25,000 acre private club. Increased in 1910 to 40,000 in an agreement with the state of New York to preserve the wilderness reserve. And in 1978, reduced to 7,000. Still a private club, who commissioned Prowell for the gate and panels for which we may, or may not, ever see photos of the completed installation.

Building the  WOOD GATE #11–PROGRESS

Beginning with the three, pre-mortised vertical divider.

Because the gate is flanked by two matching panels, the patterns are aligned with the orientation of the entire assembly.

The mitered Chevrons are cut as a batch. So it’s imperative that the four sections share the exact same dimensions.

Because the mahogany tenons are fairly short, the mitered Chevrons can be fitted to a fixed layout.

WOOD GATE #11–PROGRESS

With a design such as this, the orientation and alignment of each row is vital. Using a drywall square, pencil lines are drawn across the entire assembly for each row of Chevrons. Simple guidelines, not so dissimilar to the stringlines for brick walls and roofing shingles.

Hopefully we’ll eventually see photos from the site. But the site –The Ausable Club–is a private reserve where members are elected by committee. The Usable Mountain Reserve was established in 1887, spanning 25,000 acres. By 1910, that total was increased to 40,000 acres in an agreement with the state of New York to maintain in perpetuity the forever wild nature of the preserved lands.In 1978, the property mountain reserve situated since 1978 in the agreement was amended, leaving the Ausable Club with the current 7,000 acres that surrounds the clubhouse below.
