Gate arch

The gate I made for the side is so heavy that it was causing the post to lean inwards making it hard to open. I couldn't put a tension wire on the opposite side because of an adjacent driveway so my only solution was to add a compression element pushing the post away from the house. To keep with the tree and vine theme I built this from a glued up laminate of 2x2s.
