WOODEN FRONT GATE #110

Berkeley, CA

The second wooden gate entrance for this residence in Berkeley, CA. When hinging to an existing stucco wall, a pair of Prowell jambs are necessary, which in turn mount to the stucco, at 1-1/2″ thick each, withdrawing a total of 3″ from the stucco-to-stucco dimension.

Here we also see how the left stucco wall is noticeably taller than the right side wall. Upon closer inspection we can see how the left side of the gate is slightly below the top of the jamb and the right side is slightly above, which helps offset the two different wall heights.

Seen from within the property. Mounted to 6×6 posts set against the shingled wall. In this example the 6×6 jambs were provided by the installer and introduced in lieu of our standard jambs (1-1/2″T x 3-3/4″W) for two reasons: The wall itself may not be fully anchored, and simply wood framed, thus unable to fully support the wooden front gate over time. Secondly, the price-point extended for gates up to 48″, and takes a considerable jump for gates between 48″-60″ width. Introducing the 6×6 posts brings the gate width down to the 48″ pricing tier.

BUILDING THE WOODEN FRONT  GATE #110-PROGRESS

The grid dividers are dadoed for the half lap joints, but also rabbeted for the insert panels. On the property side, shown here, each insert panel is fitted with small wood stops.

The joinery for the wooden entry gates #110 is somewhat complicated. Not prohibitive, but creating the half-laps, as well as the rabbets for the stops requires a little forethought. There is a black crayon arrow in the forefront; the wood stops run continuous on either side of this divider, with the stops in the other, horizontal direction, cut to fit between the continuous stops.

Once the stops are glued  in place, they are hand-planed flush, and then sanded smooth. The wooden front gate #110 is one of the more labor intensive designs.
