Then I fastened the corners on each side with a screw, and that's why. I am right now, so the bottom hinge is going to go over here. So then, you want to run a diagonal from the bottom hinge up to the top, which is better because if you do it the other way, it's not going to support the weight, because all the way it's going to be held back in this bottom hinge. When I get that on so basically I just put that under there and then I'm gonna I'm going to mark it with a pencil, real, quick and then, when you cut, you want to leave the line alright. Now I got the diagonal piece cut.
You come in closer and see it fits nice and tight on both sides. That's very important because all the weights going to come back and it's going to be this piece that keeps everything in line so a buddy. So basically, then, once I get that hammered in place, I'm going to take this little metal mending plate piece and kind of line it up, and that's what's going to help hold everything together even further. This can hold the miter joint together. It's going to hold this joint together, I'm going to fast them in place with these screws, which are good for treated lumber.
I'm just going to go around the whole outside the plate, turn off to go and make sure you hold it place easily put into first that'll make sure it won't twist on here all right. Okay, now they got the cross brace done and we got the mending plates fastened. I put another board underneath and then I'm going to mark it at the all the angles. So it's easier to cut when again, when you cut make sure you leave the line, so everything fits tight and then, after these are cut, I'm going to put plates here here and here same thing, then I'm going to flip the gate over and put plates on the other sides and all the same joints and then we'll be ready for the pickets all right now I got the first three picots set on the one side.
As you can see um I actually pounded down these right here, so picket so lay over them um. I cut the first one off, which is actually the other half of the last ticket. That's on the fence that I laid up to and I only leave the first three because I'm going to set the hinge on and I'm not actually going to put any more on until the gates hung and then you can kind of adjust it easier. So that's! That's the next thing is to put these hinges on and then hang the gate, and I did drill out these holes before and when I lined up the hand just kind of lined it up somewhere around the edge. So I've got the gate home pretty much.
What I did is to hang it by myself was. I took some pickets and I laid them out under the gate, and then I set the gate on top of it to get it at the height that wanted and made sure that it was, you know, even up, even on top and made sure that the gap between the hinge side was equal all the way from top to bottom, then I drilled some pilot holes and then I put in the light bolts in each hinge and one is enough to hold it for now, but I'm gonna put a put more On them later, and then I just need to run the pickets out and my fence is complete and that's pretty much how you hang a gate.
