Default Show me your driveway entrance.

Will be buying some land soon... I want to have a nice pipe entrance / gate. Post up your entrance and gate to your property.

Mine is in progress. Found some octagon tubing on Craig's List and turned the 1 3/4" square tubing on a diamond. 40 ft. set back. Have a CNC plasma in the shop. Just need the time to finish the gate and header.

The octogon is super cool.

I’ll post mine later but it’s nothing fancy.

Just 1 suggestion - if you add a cross bar at the top, make sure it is at least 16' high and 16' wide so you can get semi trucks in and out. We have a second access for my neighbor's big tractor and discs that is a 20' wide gap in the fence.

Good suggestion but 14’ should be plenty- legal trucks are 13’6”
