Custom Gates

At Urban Cedarworks, we design and build quality custom gates using traditional mortise & tenon joinery  as well as simpler builds of gates.  We take great pride in designing and building gates that will last a lifetime and  are in scale with the home & garden setting.  These gates can be hand-crafted out of cleft cedar, or milled cedar.

 Cleft wood cedar is naturally split with a  tool called a froe.  Cleft wood cedar is rich in texture and organic curves.  It is much stronger than milled wood because you are maintaining the grain pattern when splitting the wood. Take a look at this link regarding a company in England that make awesome structures using cleft oak.

We also offer custom-designed and locally-forged gate hardware.  Our hand-forged spring latch is as beautiful as it is functional. Guaranteed to provide years of maintenance- free usage.   Also, exclusive to Urban Cedarworks’ clients,  are beautiful refurbished antique strap hinges, available in various lengths and styles.
