Default entrance gates lets see them

I am about to start building an entrance gate in my shop class. I want it to have my last name (HUNT) and some cut outs of deer and other game animals.

Lets see what all the other TBHERS have

Here is one my friend built for the ranch. The barn wood looks awesome in it. I was thinking about a smaller one for my house

I just bildt mine. It's 17'6" 2x3 14 ga. tubing 4 ft tall ....Looking for life size cut outs of buck turkey, and hog to mount on it. I just put in a dead man to brace it when it is open due to weight and length of gate .....Using an appollo 1550 to work it but still have to open it now. I picked up an a battery to put in it.......Andy

Thanks so far, lets see more. My plan is a gate similar to Palmetto's gate but with my last name where the stars are and a wildlife scene in the middle instead of a brand

I wish I had pics, but there's one between Van and Ben Wheeler made out of 8" pipe.

It's 16' or so wide and probably just as tall. At the 12' mark, they brought down 6" pipe on both sides. Then at the 8' mark, they brought down 4" pipe. It is awesome. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1423021481.367264.jpg

Draco, where do you have the square tubing bent or do you have the benders and do this yourself? When we close on my grandparents house I want to change out a chain link gate to the back yard and put in a metal gate with opener.

That and the waving grass gate were for Hill Country Natives nursery in Leander. I've built 2 other gates as well as several thousand dollars of other stuff for them. They really like me it seems.
