Step 2: Cutting

Mark your wood where you want to cut it. I used the frame as a guide as it wasn't an exact length.

Fit the planks you just cut into the frame and start screwing them to the frame with the tek screws

Step 4: Hinges

Mark area where hinges will be and screw hinges into place

Step 5: Lock

Choose where you want to put the lock adn mark the holes.

Drill holes for the lock and fasten it with the bolts that came with the lock

Step 6: That's It!

The gate is done. Now just hang it and you have made a Rustic looking garden gate in under 4 hours.

    This looks really nice. Did you weld the angle frame together?

    Yes, Unfortunately I only came across Instructables after I made the frame. That is why it isn't included in the process.
