Looking good. How much fencing was part of the job? Looks like a lot of work.

Those all are great beautiful, much better than some of the ugly plastic gates and fencing that box stores sell.

Thanks guys. The bit of fencing you can see in the photos is all there is think there was about 10metres which is nothing really.

The mortices are two passes with the 40×50mm chain set I have for the morticer the rails are nominal 38 mm so a nice fit in the holes.

Beautiful gates, great workmanship.

Those must have been a lot of work, I imagine that the gates were impressively heavy!

No as much work as you think 4 hours planing stock then about 14 hours in the little one with the vertical slats and about 18hours for the other 3. The beauty of green oak is it works with edge tools easily and quickly.

They were however heavy.

Thanks guys!
