Design for a Sturdy Gate for 6' fence?
I am building a 6'x5' privacy gate. It will have two sides so ten feet in all. I have 4x4' posts, 2x4' treated lumber for the horizontals and rough sawn 6'x6" pickets. It seems the most common design is a box frame made of 2x4's with a crossbrace from the latch to the lower hinge. Is this the best way? My tendancy is to want to lay the 2x4's flat against the pickets but this seems less common.
Any tips would be appreciated!
