I've seen a lot of gates, but none as pretty as this. Looks like a
picture!

I did a graphic drawing on a grid. I had an artist help the fabricator lay
out the pattern on the welding floor.
Had to get the gate Hot dipped Galvanized. Then I copper and bronzed it.
I did all the construction, posts, wood work, driveway, and decks and
patio's in the back.

That is really cool John. Lots of work and lots of intricate detail that I
can appreciate. It takes a lot more to put all of those pieces together
than most may realize, and I want to acknowlege your effort. Then it takes
a lot of intricate work to make it all line up so that it looks like it was
all so easy...

Great job...

Thank You for the comment. the owner is having issues with cost
over-runs....
And it is an unusual product, hand made, with a delivery and pickup to a
Galvanizing company.
The paint itself was very expensive.....
When one gets near the end of a job it seems something always comes up.
