Here is a pic of the gates after they were installed. I didn't install the gates, but it looks like whoever did knew their business. BTW, the archs on top are the same radius. I really didn't know how to handle the arch and 2 different size gates. I decided to just make them all the same radius knowing that the tops of the gates wouldn't be equal in height. Maybe I shouild have added a little more arch to the smaller gate? Comments, ideas?

If you had increased arch on smaller gate, would not have looked as good. Good job.

Having seen it done, and having hindsight perspective, I would have made it one continuous arch across both gates. Nice work though.
