In the summer i started building this gate at my house. This was procrastinated in putting on the hardware partly. In my personal projects i do this. Also because I didn’t know what kind of hardware to get for a double opening gate. I finally had to finish my gate because the wind was catching it and tearing it up. I’m excited about this. Because it ties into the Royal Lion Construction theme that’s weaved through Ireland, Scotland and England and old style construction and accents. Battle axe is inspired from our MacLaine ancestor, Gillian of the battleaxe who was a Scottish warrior of the twelve hundreds.
In some ways when I battle against the briers and thorns I feel like a warrior on my property. You can barely walk through the woods because it gets so thick. I used an ax, hedge clippers and chainsaw and it was a character building experience. I’m definitely hoping that this project develops into something totally custom and unique.
