Plasma Cut Driveway Gates
Featuring 18′ Oak Tree and Deer, Squirrel, Groundhog & Rabbits
Custom Made for Smoky Mountain Tennessee Property Entrance
Here’s an interesting set of driveway gates currently in the works by JDR Metal Art.
This project began at the custom design stage; our client really liked an oak tree driveway gate we built years ago and wanted to add something to it. We modified the design by adding to it a wildlife scene which features a large whitetail buck on one side, a doe and two fawns on the other. The deer are accompanied by two rabbits, a squirrel and a groundhog in the grass.
Preliminary Design Concept
Plasma Cut Deer & Wildlife Scenes for Left & Right Gate Panels
Here are the wildlife scene panels after the design stage was finalized and the plasma cutting was complete.
3/16″ Thickness Steel Oak Tree with Leaves Welded in Place
Fitting Up the Scene & Tree Prior to Welding to Gate
Here we’re getting the plasma cut sheets in place to secure them to the gate panels. I cut the wildlife scenes separate from their respective halves of the tree to make handling much easier during the fabrication process.
Each element of the plasma cut design is welded in place on each gate and will add both considerable strength and weight to each gate panel. Each gate panel will hang from steel posts which will be encased within a rock column. The super duty gate hinges attach to two arms which protrude from the encased posts out through the side of each column.
