Side gate using decking timber

This striking D.I.Y. side gate was made using decking timber offcuts.





The project


I built this side gate using decking timber offcuts from my neighbour. Nothing flash on the other side.


How to build a gate


The Bunnings team has shared a helpful guide to building a wooden gate that includes how to build the frame, how to add bracing to keep the gate square and how to attach the front panels.

Tara built this sturdy gate by following the above Bunnings tutorial and used recycled pallet timber to make it an affordable project.

Rufaro found that building a side gate can be an easy D.I.Y. project. This great-looking gate was built for a quarter of the price quoted by a professional.

Looks great! 👍

I particularly like the saw-tooth effect (added security?).

How tall?

Any chance of seeing your door construction - behind?
