Constructing the top lattice panel

fit the lattice into the top section of the gate and mark Inserting the lattice

The lattice was cut the correct width but kept over length.

Glue was applied to the edges of the lattice and dabs of glue were applied to the channels.

The lattice was inserted into the channels.

The lattice was marked and cut in exactly the same way as the bottom T&G boards were marked and cut as explained in the previous page.

fit the gate top rail in place and clamp between the side stiles
Adding the top rail

After applying glue, the top rail was fitted in place in between the two stiles and with the channel over the top of the lattice.

The two side stiles were then firmly clamped against the top rail.

The top rail was then nailed to the side stiles by way of angling (toe-nailing) nails through the top edge of the top rail into the stile, two altogether per gate: one at each end.
