Gary needed a gate under his carport area. It needed to be fairly heavy duty, open on hinges both forward and backwards, have a latch, and -the most important part-have an X design. The post I wanted to use for the hinge side was not very level so I levelled it as best as I could and then built the X gate.
The next project was a loose gate post on the other side of his house. I thought he just wanted the post strengthened so the gate would close better. Turned out he also wanted the gate widened, the fence re-done (it was not very straight), and – don’t forget – an X design. OK.
