High-Quality Gates and Furniture

our process page 1 Our ProcessEntry gates, gardens gates and driveway gates are just a few of our specialties. Each of our gates is built to order and designed to blend seamlessly with your cement block, brick, stacked stone, stucco, wood or other fencing material.

We provide different types of custom wood gates, doors and furniture including:

How We Build Gates

We can create any size or shape of wooden gate milled with pegged mortise and tenon joinery that is extremely strong and durable to stand up to the harsh central New Mexico environment. Our top quality gates use 1 ¾ inch thick stock wood that is milled flat, straight and square before machining the furniture grade joinery. Two 3/8 inch Oak dowels are installed in the completed joint then secured with durable waterproof glue and good clamping pressure to ensure a long-lasting bond on all fencing parts.

Tongue and groove panels prevent unsightly gaps allowing the gate panels to expand and contract with seasonal changes in the weather – this also helps keep the panels aligned and reduces rattling. The majority of our designs come standard with gate jambs for proper installation.

To finish off your gate, we offer a variety of decorative features including:

  • Arch top designs
  • Latilla windows
  • Rosettes
  • Carvings
  • Shaped rails

Clavos are rustic nails that add a decorative touch to any gate and you also have the option to add a speakeasy opening covered with a wrought iron grill.

How We Build Furniture

our process page 2 Our ProcessIn addition to our wood gates, we also offer a variety of log tables and other rustic furniture designs to showcase in your home. The process we follow to build our furniture is similar to our gate building process using sturdy and secure mortise and tenon joints. We use natural wood logs to handcraft our furniture giving each piece a unique and custom look.

We pride ourselves on the quality and durability of every piece we create and work with you, the homeowner, to create the design of your dreams. We also take the time to help you understand what we provide for that great customer experience every step of the way.
