Hi, and welcome!

In this guide we are going to explain in some detail how to create and attach a cheap gate using a fence panel and screws.

Plus a bit of wit.


What Do You Need?

  • Sandpaper+block ‘o’ wood/electric orbital sander/sanding block (highly recommended)
  • Wall plugs (recommended)
  • Hammer/house brick
  • 2 metal gate hinges
  • Pencil/pen
  • Electric drill/screwdriver
  • Handsaw or jigsaw
  • Fence panel
  • Small nail(s)
  • 1-inch screws x8
  • 2-inch screws x16
  • Goggles & mask if using power tools
  • Large 3-inch nails x6 (optional)
  • Tape measure (optional)
  • Spirit level (optional)

Use the tool set above, or the tool set below, maybe not both, although a hammer is always good to have.
