bodged gate

Working with green chestnut is a joy, its soft, splits like a dream, shaves easily and with the sapwood left on while seasoning it distorts dramatically and then the sap wood can be removed.

Chestnut is said to be weather resistant and durable, but my oldest gates are only a few years old so I can't confirm this.

This gate was an experiment in ash. Ash is not recommended for outside use. It lasted OK for 6 years untill the bottom bar became quite rotten.
