Garden Gate #5-13 is set not far from the border, where the protective services of Alejandro de la Rio have been secured to oversee not the house nor its contents nor even its occupants. Senor de la Rio’s job description is simple: guard the gate from the thievery of speculators who, as speculators, are most certainly aware of the rising equity of anything Prowell.

A look at the residence for #5-1 because houses are fun and can often be recognized with a regional flair. Pure Seattle, with it’s link to Arts and Crafts punctuated with the plate windows found in Seattle architecture but not in, say, Portland or Pasadena. Why? Well, one reason is the view. Puget Sound is incomparably more appealing as a gazing vista from practically every room the house.

The gate is situated within a courtyard, barely visible on the far left of the photo.

What’s this? Why it’s the Lance we all know and tolerate. As a career data processor for that well-known tech company in Seattle, Lance is often known for his absence of any hobbies or interests beyond his low-level acumen for collating data. Let’s be clear: Lance is not nor has ever been a Buddhist. And yet a candid photo, caught unaware, in what can only be construed by a casual observer as being engaged in the posture of prayer. A new hobby perhaps. Offering himself at the altar of His Eminence Oh Holy Gate #5.

Showing the upper pickets at 1-1/4″ thickness, mortised into the rails toward a result as impenetrable as Alcatraz, which leads us to the question: Why was the three-mile swim from “The Rock” to the shores of San Francisco so improbable–essentially escape proof–when Jack LaLanne did it three times. The first time, in the 1970’s when Charles lived just a few blocks away, LaLanne swam the distance handcuffed! Later, towing a row boat. Hard to believe? If you promise to return, you can follow this link and watch the video.

To this day, Ben prefers hand-planing each of the vertical pickets to a satin-smooth finish. With the right collection of planes and the knowledge of how to hone them to a perfect edge, the hand-planed approach delivers better results than, say, the drum sander. You don’t get rivulet shavings like this with a dull edge.
