Bernard’s Wooden Gate. (27) Posted on March 12, 2019April 23, 2019 by Thomas Selecting the right wood strips Refer to drawings. Cut and position the outer frame. Securing it with a 6X4″ screw. Cut and position the vertical base strips with spacers. Air nailed into position. Repeat it for the other side. After securing the base strip repeat it for the top side. Once the top is secured then glue the middle part altogether. The last piece needs to be trimmed by a wood router. Repeat it for the other side. And then glue the last piece into it. Wait till it dries up and then varnish 3 layers to it. Problems: This happened before varnish. Gluing it back together but it failed to hold. Cut the problem piece away. Then rejoined a new piece. Transporting the 2 wooden gates. Take out the old gate. Cut away the old iron hinge. And grind to flatten it. Leave the old iron frame intact and paint it before installing the new ones. Position one side of the new wooden gate. Fixed hinge onto the wooden gate before installation. Mark and drill holes and then tap thread for the flatted screw.
