    Default Deck Gate

    Since everyone likes pics.........

    I added a second set of stairs to the deck so the dogs have direct access
    to the back yard. We are refinishing the deck also. At times the dogs need
    to stay off the deck so I made a new gate. I have a Three Chows security system.

    Notice in the close up the ends of the scrolls. These are heated in a forge and hammered to the tip shape rather than being square ended. I think this approach makes a much nicer looking scroll.

    WHO PUT THE DOGS OUT........

    That is a nice looking gate. I just wonder if it is strong enough for that dog - looks like he is looking at it and laughing to me

    If I had know I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.

    great looking gate. did you make the rings also or just the scrolls ??
    nice looking puppies.
    i think the gate is a mental thing more than an actual stopping force, if they are anything like my dogs they would go over it in a sec. if they wanted too. must be well behaved to stay on the other side.......and not eat the gate.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    Hey guys.........don't you know a girl when you see them?(the darker one)
    The shy white one is a boy that we rescued from Huntsville Alabama in October 2004,...700 miles away. Of course all you can see is his ears. Before I went to get my camera, all 3 were pressed against the gate which would have made a good pic. Why is it they do all their cute stuff when the camera is not in hand. I think they heard my wife tell me to get the camera and then I heard a bark which means "RUN". I'm not sure but can only assume.

    The scrolls are 1/2" and so are the pickets.........

    Yes, I made the rings which are 1/2 " also......I have a picket twister I made about 5 years ago and if I put a 3" mandrel on it with a catch dog, I can start a 20' piece of round or square and have it roll up like a coil spring, then cut off rings as I need them, close them in a vise and weld them.

    The dogs are well behaved unless you bring them into the house but the play
    is still in the dogs. They should have a PLAY METER on them.
    Thanks for the looking.

    Default Our Chow Babies

    Some other pictures of our Chows that ducked out when I tried to take pictures of the gate with our Chows peering through. The picture of the black dog is a picture of a picture because he chose to stay inside while I was taking pictures. We rescued him also in 2004 from a local Rescue; a few months prior to adopting the white Chow from Huntsville, Alabama. which we rescued in Oct, 2004.

    Boy, I'd love to see your bending setup for those pieces. I have to make some ranch-ways this winter for some folks back in TN and I need some ideas on making the decorative pieces like that.

    Monte, beautiful looking kids you got there, look mighty happy and healthy. Glad to hear you took on the responsibility of rescuing these fine animals. Dave
