The cool way is to forget the fence and just build a gateway -- a portal from here to there that implies a change of space without presenting a physical barrier. Materials are readily available -- 4 x 4s for the posts, 2 x 6s for the arches and braces, and 1 x 6 stock ripped to width for the remaining pieces. While you're in the planning stage, decide whether you'll plant the posts in the ground, or use post brackets to secure them on concrete blocks, as we did. Model designed in Alibre Design Xpress.

Making the Arches The curved top pieces are made of two layers of 2 x 6 segments fastened together with screws and exterior glue. Assembling the Top This part is tricky because the arches must be upside down to attach the arch crossties. Side Panel Construction To build perfectly square side panels, we drew the post positions directly on the garage floor [9].

Miss Moss Les Passionnés du Bois d'Ile-de-France The Unplugged Woodshop Capers With Carroll: Japanese Landscapes @ the Clark On Saturday, I celebrated my birthday with a visit to the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, and took along my wife and my father. I try to get this museum as often as their exhibitions change, and Near and Far: Landscapes by Japanese Artists. Rotation 1: Imagination of Nature closes December 22. Its companion, Near and Far: Landscapes by Japanese Artists. Rotation 2: Idealization of Reality, opens January 6. We arrived just a few minutes past 1:00 pm on Saturday, just a little late to catch the beginning of the weekly docent tour. One of the oldest pieces, Mountains by a River, is attributed to Kenkō Shōkei (active about 1478-1506), a Zen priest who studied paintings from Song and Yuan China. As an example of the professional artists, the Kanō family ran an art school and served wealthy patrons, from the late 15th Century, until near the end of the 19th. Color and detail also attracted me to Komuro Suiun’s Mount Hōrai. The most dramatic piece is also the most recent (1984).
