... a little information about your course...
Jack has asked you to send some basic drawings or images of what you think you would like to make as it will help him prepare in advance.
He recommends that your gate should have no more than 4 horizontal rails and a diagonal brace.
You can also have upright 'palings' which are less work than the horizontal rails and you can have as many of those as you like.
The simplicity of your design is important as it is surprising how much work is involves.
We need to know the dimensions of your gate so please mark this on your drawing
Ideally the outer dimensions should not be more than 4ft wide, but it can be any height
Timber and hinges
The timber for your gate is likely to be £50, maybe less
Jack will also bring hinges which you can buy from him at £20 per pair
