    The best local wood to use outdoors in the northwest, is Red or Yellow Cedar. I used Douglas Fir because it is what was readily available and less expensive. It also weathers quite well and seeing that the gate has a roof, it won’t be getting any direct rainfall.

    What’s the most common wood that you would use for an outdoor part, is it oak or larch or some other hardwood?

  6. 6488jesse says:

    I cut notches into the styles and glued them in with epoxy. The hinge pins are stainless steel with a plastic sleeve, so they shouldn’t wear out too fast. But when they do, I’ll have to fein them out or build new gates. I did that way really just to see if it could be done, and it can. They look and work great and allow the gates to swing either direction. Needless to say, my ego was quite happy that the idea didn’t backfire on me. Or hasn’t yet anyways.

    Amazing work, just have one question. How did you fasten the hinges to the door?

    This is really nice work; you should be proud (but humble). Stay away from Alcohol and bad women, and stay a master crafts person – when I think of the years I wasted!

  24. ffhyatt1 says:

    That is awesome! I’ve just started getting into Japanese joinery techniques. Hard to find clients willing to pay for the extra work so it’s mostly for my benefit. You have the technique down
