Gate & Pergola in place.

I made this gate from reclaimed cedar that I salvaged from the roof of an old gas station.  The pergola is made from reclaimed Douglas Fir that I salvaged from an old bowling alley.  I even used the original bolts to hold it together at the top.  Gate includes recycled glass balls on copper rods.  I've since installed a solid bronze latch and treated the whole thing with "Lifetime" natural wood preservative.

You have inspired me to use an open-weave door I found in the street the other day to make an entrance to nowhere because I don't have an enclosed garden. Vines can grow on the door (I'll leave it "open") and I can use posts around it like you did.I'll send pictures! Lola Stanton
