Just Starting Out

fence gate construction 1metre wide 2metres high

I’m looking to construct an easy assembly outdoor gate size 1metre wide by 2 metres high (preferably merbau or other appropriate timber) I’m a complete newbie and need advice where to source, what to source and building instructions.  I liked the gate in the image attached.  I live in Melbournes South East

Hi @sandray,


Welcome to Workshop. We're pleased you could join us and look forward to seeing your gate project come to life (with a little bit of help from our amazing community along the way....)


I would recommend you follow the wonderful @Tara86's example that she shared in her much-admired D.I.Y. gate project and start with the Bunnings step-by-step How to build a gate tutorial. I will also embed a video below. 


Hope you find the resources helpful for getting started. Then feel free to come back and ask for any specific advice.
