Tall gate

December 28, 2011

Beautiful air dried welsh oak boards they had been in a shed for about 20 years.

Through the thicknesser

Routing the edges by following it’s natural lines and make a tide fit.

Dovetail shaped braces that will keep the boards tight together

Two on one side one on the other side

Wood for the fencing will be placed on a stone wall next to the gate

All planed and cut into shape that flows in a natural line

I am making holes in different shapes. Later the holes will be filled with beautiful stained glass images made by artist Tamsin Abbott

I just make them up while I am working on it.

I made templates for all the different shapes then used the router

Finished wall parts I am pleased feels good to me.

Gluing the braces in place, after sanding it all  the fence parts are going to Tamsin Abbott and I made templates from the spaces in the door,  she is a glass artist and she is going to make glass pieces that fit in the open spaces. Can’t wait to see results.
