Oklahoma City Driveway Gates | Horses & Dogs Design by JDR Metal Art

Oklahoma City Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art

Oklahoma City driveway gates featuring life-size horse and dog plasma cut silhouettes built at JDR Metal Art.

We are currently working on this driveway gate project for a ranch entrance located on the outskirts of Oklahoma City. There will be one of these 15′ wide x 7’4″ tall single swing gates at two separate entrances. Each gate will feature three paint horses and our clients’ five family dogs.

Using our custom gate design process, we were able to take the design from start to finish in a couple week’s time. First, we worked with our customers over the phone and through email to coordinate the necessary dimensions and details for the custom driveway gate design. Then we put together the design theme they had in mind.

We lay the designs out by hand and then use a hyperthem plasma cutter to create these gate silhouettes. Since there are two gates with the same design and we are doing them by hand (not with a CNC machine) each one will be slightly different but this makes them unique as well!

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.

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.

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.
