Custom Gate & Access fabricates custom wood gates from only the finest materials available. If you’re considering cedar gates, you’re in luck; we primarily use kiln-dried, vertical-grain Western Red Cedar in our gate construction. Your cedar fence gates will remain attractive for years to come because Western Red Cedar is a low-shrinkage wood and thus highly resistant to warping, twisting, and checking. If redwood gates are more to your liking, don’t worry. Besides red cedar, we also employ a variety of other woods, including redwood, mahogany, and fir.
Our gate construction process begins with rough timber which we machine to specification. We then tool and assemble your cedar gate with outdoor weather tolerance in mind. We don’t use mechanical fasteners (i.e. nails, screws, or dowels) to hold our gates together. We draw on traditional woodworking techniques to make all of our wooden joints. We also cater the construction of our cross-laminated half-lap joints to the kind of wood being used to allow for full natural expansion and contraction. The structural integrity of this type of joint is far superior to that of the dowel butt or floating tenon joint.
Most of our cedar gates (and other woods) are paint grade or stain grade. Our stain-grade gates typically are 3½” thick and our paint-grade gates are 3” thick. However, we can and will manufacture according to custom specifications. Our gallery also features a wide variety of redwood, mahogany, fir, and cedar fence gates for you to choose from.
