St. Louis Missouri Driveway Gates
Oak Tree Theme by JDR Metal Art
This St. Louis project that we are currently working on at JDR Metal Art is going to be a wrought iron oak tree driveway gate that will be mounted between two stone columns. We have coordinated measurements with the property owner to make sure the gate will fit well at its final destination.
This 5×12′ plate of 3/16″ thick steel has been traced with the outline that we will be using to make the tree. The trunk will be extended by splicing it to the rest of the tree with another piece of plate cut from the leftover material.
After a few hours of cutting..close to the halfway point with the tree.
Fitting the outside frame together on the fabricating table. Each end of the gate needs to be 4’6″ tall so as to stay below the capstone on the column…while the center slopes down to 4’0″ tall.
Sparks fly as a MIG welder is used to superheat the metals for joining. The leaves become permanently attached to the branches of the tree by using this tool much like a hot glue gun.

A coat of red primer helps the finish coat adhere better to the gate.
The topcoat is an oil-rubbed bronze paint from Rustoleum.
The leaves are quite detailed and authentic looking.
