A variation on wood garden gate design #67, and with wider upper grid dividers
The two upper patterns of both 67 and 68 are often a solution to dead bolt security, disallowing any clearances large enough to reach through the grid and release the dead bolt.

Wood garden gate designs #68-1 is shown with two flanking panels, built by the homeowner’s carpenter to mimic the Prowell Fence Panels. The homeowner was careful not to disclose the full extent of this project–ordering simply the gate as a stand-alone commission. In retrospect, with the supplied photos, it would probably have been best to defer on this project.
If you are a painter hired to paint a portrait and the patron requests that you leave out the background so a painter he knows can paint that in cheaper, and then requests that you in fact leave out everything but the face as his painter can also paint all that in and do it in your mimicked style, and then the lasting request that you sign it, please.
Now the problem exists when the 3rd party fence begins to show it’s age. A mimicked methodology that does not include the joinery nor the more time-consuming details that were developed to Prowell’s original fence design. Folks in years to come recognize prowell’s gate–and fence– and because the flanking fence panels are similar, somewhat, they may understandably assume the panels are Prowell’s as well, and yet the panels are a shambles and their incurred opinion of Prowell’s work as a whole takes an unkindly blow.
Custom wood garden gate #68-2, with its confusingly similar grid pattern. Originally designed to accompany Fence Style #29
What’s this? A photo bomb cameo by Prowell’s illegitimate twin brother, the bastard Chuck.
The accompanying Fence style #29, in Bethesda, Maryland at only 36″ width.
The Bastard Prowell has breached security and gained access to a Prowell job site, shadowing his twin brother’s accolades. Is Charles even aware that Chuck exists? And who’s the culprit? His humble father? Or perhaps his mother, the legendary beauty and her wake of drooling admirers stretching beyond the brick n’ mortar strata of earth itself.
