Our homeowners have opted for the Yale Bluetooth dead bolt. Powered by AA batteries, these are manufactured for residential entry doors, with nthe battery housing located on the interior side of the front door. There is a strong likelihood that the batteries will oxidze with the exposure to the elements. Particularly in Dana Point, right on the coast.

Honolulu, Hawaii

An arty portal through the wood garden gate and into the modest backyard, landscaped with an inimitable Hawaiian appeal. Judging from the board and baton siding, the property would date to the late 20’s.

The re-emergence of Jocko. No known address. 3-time felon. Stints in Quentin, the Big House. And yet lovable, if you were to ask Lewella Lovely.

Lovable Jocko, with a gun.

Although it’s not a great photograph to scrutinize the gates themselves, the accent lighting is a charming testament to just where those two gates fall within the hierarchy of what’s appreciated!

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #2-7

Sanibal Island, Georgia

Garden Gate #2-7 sent in from the small Island of Sanibel –offshore from Ft Meyers, Florida. The photo alone seems to express leisure and the impression of a low metabolic existence.

With the architecture itself featuring the low-pitch roofline, the same precedent should follow with the planting. Selecting low plantings that will not in coming years completely upstage the house itself.

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATE #2-10

Muskeegan, Michigan

We throw this site in, located a few hundred miles north of Chicago along Lake Michigan, not so much for how the gate fits within the schematic of an existing fence, but to impress you with how a few thoughtful revisions can redefine an otherwise unassuming curb appeal.
(See below).

New windows and door. A new roofline that extends to incorporate the porch, confirmed with the tapered columns. An arching portico to establish the curb appeal. And a little landscaping. All in all, an efficient makeover.

Atlanta, Georgia

Illustrating a distinctive means of dealing with the narrow easement common to the density of a metropolitan city. Wood Garden Gate #2-8 in Atlanta, GA. Shown with flanking panels and a 3rd party arbor.

(Please, when painting the gates, allow them to breath for 4-6 weeks prior to applying any non-absorbent finish. Absorbent finishes, such as WoodRX, are flexible and move with the breathing wood. Paint does not, and particularly so in areas such as Georgia in August. If you prefer white, you are much wiser to opt for a solid-body stain or paint.

Ben routing the oval segments to one of the three template sizes.

WOOD GARDEN GATE #2–PROGRESS

Creating the oval requires dissecting the circumference into it’s four vectors. Determining the angle. Creating four segment lengths. Joining them with tenons. Clamping. And only then can we create the oval template shown below, routed with the strength of four diagonals that will not check or crack or bow over the coming decades.

WOOD GARDEN GATE #2–PROGRESS

Dating back to the earliest #2’s, when the oval was created with an Oval Jig. A laborious process that was expedited by simply creating three ply templates in three varying sizes.
