Red Bank, New Jersey

Open upper grids of 4" to 5" square. A series of lower panels and center stiles.
Part of an extended fenceline of 45 panels and several pedestrian gates, all sharing the same grid sizes which were calculated on the longest section of featured fence. Hence, the Driveway Gate, with it's distinctive net width, shows remainder grids on the left and right while allowing the hoirzontal grid dividers to align throughout the project.

The original #31 is identical with the exception of two lower center stiles.
Because this was a stand-alone gate, the grids were calculated for equal grids both vertically and horizontally.

Although the joinery varies widely, we've opted for this 12' overall opening without steel what might be called a 'Through floating mortise and tenon with expanding oak wedges in both the exposed hinge stile, as shown below, as well as blind wedges within the tenon-to-rail mortise'. A mouthful.

Let's go ahead with a few explanatory images that will at once be of interest to you, our potential patron, while also spoon-feeding the legions of aspiring competitors toward the secret sauce that, in part, accounts for why this gate will be around 50 or years, or until some unlikely event like a wayward comet makes its landfall at the foot of your property. And it should be noted, here and now, that we charge for rebuilding any and all gates obliterated by, well . . . by wayward comets.

The basic premise shown below.

what joinery is used for building wood gates

The exposed Through Tenon and Wedges on the vertical stiles at the bottom of the image serve to expand the tenon against the shoulders of the mortise with a permanency that will, with exposure to dew and fog and rain and humidity, expand and become even tighter. While in the drier season, the joint will shrink back to the original fit created in the shop.

The blind wedges shown as they feed into the 3" deep mortise in the horizontal rails.
As the tenon is tapped in place, the wedges will eventually reach the back of the mortise and with each subsequent tap, they drive themselves into the tenon, expanding the cheeks against the shoulders of the mortise.
