Hello Dennis,
                       Your versatility never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful job mate. Are you painting or varnishing them? Look forward to the pic of the finished job.  Alan  T.

You have made a grand job of these gates, I agree with every ones remarks
 just for a matter of interest which way did you brace the gates? and what sort of hinges and fittings are you going to use.

That is one hell of a gate Dennis - well done yet again.  You are going to need some mighty good hinges (hooks and bands I presume) and a well fixed post for that.  What width is it? My guess is that it is about 8 feet.

hi All
   thank you for your commpliments.
        firstly the finishing is down to my mate and his neighbour as i have also made a double gate in the same stile as this one for him (photos to come).
    Oddjob you are right i will be using the double band at 2' and a adjustabl bottom hinge as used on farm gate.the length of the gate is 10' and the other 2 are 5' each.
    Ron i actualy had to turn 14 of them .
    Ivor i hope so i realy enjoyed doing them. 
    George the joints are mortis and tennen with acrilick glue (glue name is lumber jack 30 min set point)and pined right through with dowls.
     i will post more photos later thank you again to all.

I think it may be worth considering a wheel to take the weight.
A great piece of work.

Well done Dennis what a lovely pair. I think I prefer the second set over the single gate. This does not distract from the workmanship in any way
