    Moon Gates

    I have built several moon gates over the years, but these are the nicest by far. They utilize our 'woven wood' method for infill.

    Please adjust your viewing angle.....

    I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    What kind of sorcery is this! I have seen three projects recently with a variation of the woven lattice work; it has give me quite a headache trying to figure out how it was done. I trust we will find out soon?

    Beautiful Gates.

    David, those are beautiful. What are the dimensions?

    Beautiful workmanship. Would love to hear more about your technique for weaving it.

    I'm pretty sure you can't delete the entire original post, because it is now the anchor for the other posts in the thread. However, maybe you can edit the original post to remove all the text and maybe the photo too. If you can do that, you might leave a note in the edited post saying that you removed the content.

    Joe,

    At the top of the page under quick links/view site leaders you will find a list of moderators. I can't tell who is responsible for this subforum, but one of them should be able to point you in the right direction to delete the post.

    I assume you have a good reason, but I think it's quite appropriate, your work is beautiful.

    It's kind of too late now, my reason was I realized I was stealing David's thunder right after I posted.

    Joe, that is very considerate and sensitive, but David has been doing Arch WW for 50 years. As Such, i imagine he is as interested in seeing your gates as much as the rest of us, and probably understands the complexity, difficulty and craftsmanship more than most of us.

    JMHO, YMMV. Patrick
