These Louisiana driveway gates are shown fresh out of the powder coat oven before we palletized and shipped them from our custom gate shop in Columbus, Ohio to just outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana via motor freight.

Custom Designed Gates

We modified this gate design from and existing one to suit our client’s driveway entrance. Each gate panel was made 9’6″ long and will be hung from posts sunk deep into the Louisiana ground for a dual swing entrance gate.

Plasma Cut by Hand

Custom plasma cut gate lettering identifies our client’s estate and the year it was established. We also added a pair of ducks to each of the arched top gates and a wild boar on the left side. All the different design aspects were both laid out and plasma cut entirely by hand.

Cheap Shipping Rates

We were able to get a shipping rate of $320 for this client shipping via SAIA Motor Freight with a 2 day transit time. He had the gates shipped to his business where he unloaded them with a forklift. The entire package weighed about 600 lbs with each gate weighing about 250lbs and the packing being the rest of the weight.  We palletize the gates in a way they can also easily be taken off the trailer by hand one gate at a time with the help of 3-4 people. Residential delivery with liftgate and local freight terminal dock pickup options are also available.

Driveway Gates Cincinnati Ohio

These Cincinnati Ohio driveway gates were built and installed by JDR Metal Art. They are 16′ wide and feature two whitetail deer and a fox in a woodland setting. It was custom designed, drawn out and plasma cut by hand.

Each gate panel is plasma cut from 11ga. cold rolled steel and framed with steel 2″ square tubing that has walls 1/8″ thick. They weigh approximately 250 lbs per panel.They were painted black with urethane paint.

We used steel 4″ square tubing with 1/4″ wall thickness for the posts and then filled them with concrete and rebar for added stability. The hinges are steel blocks with J-bolts and stainless steel ball bearings. We installed automatic gate openers and automated exit devices with these gates.

Missouri Driveway Gates | Artistic Oak Tree & Horse Metal Art

Missouri Driveway Gate

Metal Art Oak Tree Gate with Horse Cutouts Delivered to Missouri

Missouri oak tree drive entrance gate featuring horses by JDR Metal Art

We completed this JDR Metal Art Missouri driveway gate in the summer of 2014.

It is a plasma cut driveway gate we custom designed, built and delivered from our gate shop in Columbus, Ohio to Missouri. It is 15′ long and approximately 8′ tall in the center. Our clients graciously sent us the picture after we installed the gate and their brick columns and concrete driveway were later completed, complementing their new 16′ single swing oak tree gate.

Another picture immediately after fabrication & powder coating…

This was the longest single piece gate we had built up to that time (until the next Missouri driveway gate we designed and built). Usually we end up splitting the gate into two pieces. This was a setup where fabricating a large single swing gate did not present an issue. We used all 1/8″ thick steel wall tubing for the framework. The oak tree silhouette itself was plasma cut by hand out of a 3/16″ thick sheet of steel. The two metal art horses which accent the tree are also plasma cut from 3/16″ sheet metal. After we put the oak tree leaves on the gate we then sandblasted everything, pretreated it and baked on two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade black powder coat.

Plasma Cut Tree Headboard

For these particular clients we also built a custom metal art headboard to match a Cali-King size bed frame. It was powder coated with a special order grey metallic flake finish.

St. Louis Missouri Driveway Gates | Plasma Cut Oak Tree Design

St Louis Missouri Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art

Oak Tree Theme

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 leafs 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.
