A gate like no other

Peter has been itching to build a gate ever since we took delivery of our MultiCam CNC plasma cutter. Plasma cut gates aren't uncommon but he intended to take things up several notches. The gate would be curved inwards and have a curved meeting point but we've done that before on other gates we've built. This time he would cut five layers of plate steel and weld them together to create a forest scene, complete with wildlife.

Today Peter fired up the MultiCam and set it in motion while he and the boys started cutting and welding up a sturdy steel frame. Then they polished the edges of the cut steel plate and started welding. The first layer is now complete. Tomorrow they will begin cutting and welding new layers in place. Stay tuned...
