WOOD GARDEN GATES #53-5

Arched wood gate #53-5 as a double-offset. We also are without the two vertical grid frames shown in the standard #53 examples.
#53-5 is also without the open squares and the Pattern Blocks joined between the lower pickets. It might, after all these modifications, be closer to a #20 than the #53. But what remains is the distinctive feature of the top rail arched on top and straight on bottom, and therefore it is labeled as a #53

Available as a double offset, double, or single gate.

Looking out from the property.

The double off-set option is normally determined by an existing walkway, with a width that is somewhat cumbersome as a single garden gate and too narrow for equal double garden gates.

WOOD GARDEN GATES #53

Mortised Squares and Pattern Blocks

The original arched wood gate #53 offers an arching top rail with a level bottom edge. Within the upper pattern, the two vertical dividers allow us to configure for 3 equal grid sizes, both vertically and horizontally, in much the same manner as the Gate Design #52, but with slightly less muscle.

Often there are parameters within the existing architecture that call out the occasional radius, but with the overriding precedent of a angular geometry (Gabled rooflines). The straight bottom edge of the top rail in Garden Gate #53, incorporates both features.

Featuring grids of approximately 6″
