Re: side gate

Hi. I may have been in a similar situation--cut a space into an existing timber fence & inserted a gate. Used a gate frame to keep it simple.

Reply if you want to provide details & get suggestions. Cheers, Peter

Re: side gate

Hi @Flying-phonix,

 

Sorry for the slow reply, but I'm sure the Workshop community can help you with this project. 

 

I'd recommend you start with the Bunnings How to build a gate tutorial. I will also attach a video below.

 

Wonderful Workshop member @Tara86 followed the guide and achieved a brilliant result as you can see in this post - D.I.Y. gate - thanks to Bunnings tutorials. I'm sure Tara would be more than happy to give you any assistance you need if you come back to us with any specific questions.

 

Great to see you make your first post on the community. We are looking forward to seeing your gate project come to fruition.

Re: side gate

Thanks for that @Flying-phonix. Plenty of scope for improvement!

 

Do you have any specific questions based on the how to build a gate tutorial? Then helpful members like @Tara86@Shannon and @Brad can provide more specific advice rather than just general tips.
