Well, this gate project turned out to be a much bigger project than expected, but it did turn out pretty great in the end. They are made out of cedar and should hold up well over time. The girls are checking it out (Capella is marking it by rubbing her head all over it, LOL) and approve!
It is all "Goat Social" ready now! ;-)
This was another cedar project that began as a raised bed, but then turned into a bench combination! I really love how it turned out, and it seems to be very sturdy. The chipmunks haven't made it their home just yet (like the raised bed around the other elm tree, where all my tamped down bare root trees are temporarily) but they will find it soon enough I'm sure! LOL.
