step 1:

go to the site and measure the old gate or the opening where you plan on installing the gate

Then I started sketching out the gate, using the measurements I made on site and keeping the width and depth of my wood in mind. the sketch-up is then the guide for the whole build. I originally planned to make a cross at the back - as you can see in the drawings - but as I was building the gate I opted to make a square subframe instead of the cross.

In what country was this project done? Okan and Tali are not available in Canada as far as I am aware.

I'm from Belgium so the project was done right here in Belgium. Tali and Okan are easy to buy here in local woodshops.

what kind of wood would you use in canada to build these kind of projects? redwood or american oak or something else?
