Thanks for sharing. And for the compliment of being in good company with Walker! :-). Interesting that those gates stand just by being bolted at the bottom. I haven't made any with cat tails yet, but maybe someday. Enjoy your training trip! Brian

Some pics of the gates with the wood installed. Sad to say but we have to uninstall them now. The engineer did not spec the standoffs heavy enough and the gates sag when open. The standoffs were 3/8" X 2" stainless flat welded to 1/4" X 2" stainless flat that was tap conned into the concrete pillar. Then the stone Mason's finished the stone work. We were thinking that the stone would give the stainless some rigidity, but it is not. The stainless is flexing enough to crack the cement and stone away. So now we have to strengthen the standoffs and the stone Mason's have to remove their stone so we can reinforce the stand offs. Wasn't given enough time to do the job right in the first place, but now we get to do the job over! Brian
