    Default Driveway Gate - opinions wanted

    NOTE: Updated with pictures of the finished project on 6/22/11. See far below.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am (re)building an 11 ft. gate for the driveway. I plan to re-use the 1yr old cedar fence boards that are already on it since they match the rest of the fence. I do not want a double-hinged gate split in the middle with two separate pivot points, but would rather have a single, wide gate with one pivot point.

    Here is my first design of it. What do you think?

    I was thinking about using 2" square tubing 0.125" wall. I do not mind a little "overkill". The wheel will support the weight on the free/un-hinged end.

    Suggestions, critiques, ideas, etc, please.
