I am currently working on a driveway gate for a vineyard in Eastern WA. The gate is heavy metal and is constructed from 98% of found objects. The owners wanted something simple that would keep people from driving down the driveway when they were not home. I wanted to create something that would be functional but also wanted something that looked pleasant yet not take away from the natural beauty of the property.
One evening while sitting on the front porch with the home owners the wife made a comment on how we should see the sunset and the moon rise at the same time. Later that night I got up out of bed and drew the design. This is my first gate and my first consigned project.
Special thanks to Green River Community College for the use of the school as my work shop and to Brad Isley for taking my simple sketch and designing the parts to make it all work.
