  1. Gotta gate I'm getting real close to hanging and I am really struggling with whether I have chose the correct posts to mount to, and whether my concrete hole to support the post will be deep enough. I have tried a few post calculators online but can't find enough information to feel confident in my posts. The gate is 8' tall, 4' wide, and weighs almost 300 lbs. the post I chose to hang the gate on is a 2"x3" structural tube post with a 1/4" wall thickness. On the other side of the post is a 13" wide side panel also 8' tall that is welded to the same post. That panel additionally weighs

    made a gate for the owners private home on a wine farm (edgebaston/Stellenbosch)
  3. This project is to replace an existing old chain link entry gate for a volunteer community garden with a fabricated, more artistic one. I would like to use the existing 2 1/4" diameter galvanized posts (see attached drawing) which were placed by a commercial fence company several years ago in what was likely a sufficiently deep hole to prevent frost heaving but only about 8" diameter concrete footer. The inside dimension between the two posts is 49". I made my gate* 48" wide (which may be a problem, I realize now). The gate will weigh approx 150#. My question is the best way to hinge it.
  4. Hey everyone! Here's a gate that we did a few years ago, but it's one of my favorite projects we've done so I thought I'd share it. The gate is 5 ft tall, by 39 inches wide, I think. We cheated a bit, it's not all hand forged, a lot of it is plasma cut from a 3/8 hot rolled plate. But the leaves are hand forged. We painted it with a tarnished copper green, sprayed a watered down black paint all over it light but enough to make it run down the gate a bit. And the leaves have been gold brushed. Hope ya'll like it! Have a good weekend!

  7. my new front garden gate design.
  8. Recently I read Jack Andrews book Samuel Yellin Metalworker through Inter Library Loan, and in looking through all the job cards, saw that Yellin’s shop did some gates and grills at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, the city where I work. I’d thought all of Yellin’s work, at least his public work, was in the East. This was an exciting chance to see a great smith’s work up close and personal. Little did I know. A quick call to Grace Cathedral, just to check the hours they were open and see if anyone knew specifically about the gates and grills, put me in touch with the Cathedral Archivist, w
