Yet another set of cedar gates. Made from reclaimed BPA power poles. I'm really getting to like building gates because people tend to be far more open to creative whimsy with them than with anything in their house.
Phinds, yes. It is western red cedar that was used by the Bonneville Power Association for power poles. They replaced the poles a few years ago after being used for 40 years. A local sawyer got a stack of them and I have used this wood for several projects, including other gates. (I have an older post: "gates I have made" which shows another set with this wood.) It's really sweet.
