Here’s a recently completed pair of oak driveway gates made for a client that we met at the Stock Gaylard Oak Fair back in the summer. They feature curved rails and braces with asymmetric opening.
The gates are made from air dried oak to minimise movement as the timbers acclimatise and weather. All structural joints are mortice and tennon with oak draw dowels. The hinges and latches were forged at the Dorset Forge specifically to fit the curve of the rails. The gates have a sanded finish and have been treated to an undercoat and two top coats of OSMO UV Protection Oil.
