Custom Wood Garden Gate #200-A is an obvious derivative of the #200, modified from the original concept in collaboration with the site architect Carl Schneider.
A good example of how nearly all of the 140 +_ original designs on our gate galleries were originally the result of either speculative designs or modifying a given gate style to the existing precedent of the site's aesthetics.
The lines to #200-A were influenced by not only it's portal gateway to the Pacific, but to the iconic architecture of the house itself (see below)

Transluscent acrylic rod, diffusing as the setting sun angles across the gate.
Upper opaque plexiglas for a modicum of eye-level privacy.

The dry-fitting of the essential componants.
On the more complex gates, at some point the primary lines must be permanently joined to insure the fitting of all subsequent parts. Working with the three identical bent laminations, we play with their eventual fit, which of course establishes the basic lines of the gate.

In creating the various radiuses for the secondary wenge componants, Ben turns to an ancient method of a pliable 1/4" thick stock, tensioned with a string coupled with a turnbuckle that allows for slight adjustments to the radius. With this he can then trace the eventual arch of each componants onto the wenge stock.
