Side Gate

Built a new side Gate for my Grandma's house. She had an old metal gate and it was always getting stuck when she would try to open it. My neighbor was going to throw out some old scrap pieces of wood but he gave them to me instead. I took the wood and trim them with my miter saw to make them all equal lengths. I then clamped the pieces together after putting wood glue on them and used my impact driver to put in the deck screws. One that was dry I bought the same piece of lattice that she used for her backyard and glued and screwed it to the top of the gate so it matched the rest of her yard. Then I stained and put the hardware on it.

  • It was definitely heavy amack93. It took both me and my Dad to move and hang the gate.
