Building a Garden Gate with Mark Emig. #631-0906. 5 days. September 6 - 10.

So you want to build a gate? Learn how to design, build, and hang a traditional gate. The gate will be constructed with mortise and tenon construction including an upset heel bar and a simple latch assembly. We will cover stock size consideration, how to compensate for the sag in a gate, and the mounting and hinge system. A properly made gate will not sag with time, and will last longer than we will live if done properly - and we will do it properly! The class will work on a gate to be installed at AFS. This class is good for blacksmiths of all levels, but previous experience is helpful.

Tuition $600. Member Tuition $550.

NOTE: Hard shoes and long pants are required for student safety.
