Arranging a reliable garage not only ensures the safety of the car, but also prevents intruders from entering the vehicle. Each car owner seeks to have his own garage, since in large cities a lot of cars spend the night in the open air, being exposed to the harmful effects of the environment and being the object of increased attention from fraudsters. For owners of country houses and cottages, the task of erecting the named building is one of the first lines in the list of priority actions. But the excessively high cost of manufacturing this design in some cases discourages any desire to implement his plans. Significantly reduce costs in the construction of the garage will allow the use of wood and the manufacture of some elements of the structure with his own hands. An integral part of any construction of this type are the gate. For their high-quality construction, it is necessary to become familiar with how to make wooden gates on their own without the involvement of specialists.
The main advantages of this material are:
Depending on the tastes and preferences of each owner, it is possible to make any type of gate: a sliding view or a variant with a lifting device.
The most simple and versatile type are swinging gates. Manufacturing technology of this element is intuitive and does not require special construction skills from the master.
The main task is to take into account all the subtleties and important features, as well as to carry out high-quality measurements and processing of wood.
Before preparing the required material and tool, you should make a diagram of the future structure and accurately calculate its location. Having finished with these points, it is worth starting measurement of an entrance aperture. To increase the visibility, it would be useful to use the existing sketch and adjust all values to fit your version.
Tools for work
Compiling a detailed sketch will allow you to better navigate the number of consumables and components. Construction of the structure involves the use and preparation of the following tools and materials:
When making wooden gates for the garage, special supports must be prepared in advance. If they are not ready yet, then they will require two wooden beams or logs for their production.
Installation of garage doors from wood
Prepare holes for them with a depth of at least 1, 2-1.5 m. When constructing any supporting structure, the simple rule is that the deeper the posts are located, the more stable and reliable the gate will be. We cut the workpiece to the required height, taking into account the part of the support, which will be in the ground. To increase strength, it will be useful to further strengthen the foundation of future support pillars, by filling the bottom of the recesses with a small amount of crushed stone of the 5 * 20 fraction and ramming the resulting substrate.
To prevent premature destruction of wooden poles, it is necessary to treat the places that will be underground with a special water-repellent mastic or resin.
Installation of pillars
Next, install the pillars, fix the vertical position on the construction level and fill deepening concrete or cement mix. In addition, to give greater practicality and aesthetics, you can impose concreted places with large stone or brick.
After completing all the preparatory procedures, we proceed to the fabrication of the structure itself.
In accordance with the dimensions of the entrance aperture, we cut the wooden bar to the required values and lay it out on an even place so as to make a rectangle or square depending on type of gate.
We check the horizontal and vertical position of the laid out bars, then we drill holes in the corner joints and fasten the construction with screws or pins. It will not be superfluous to strengthen the corners and the center of the frame, respectively, with steel corners and transverse beams. The ends of the last items are cut at an angle of 45º, placed crosswise and fixed with screws.
Metal profiled pipes can also be used as the basis for the future frame, but welding equipment is required for manufacturing.
The next event is the production and processing of the surfaces of the cladding elements. Depending on the material chosen and the size of the leaves, cut the required number of boards. As a rule, pine is used for plating, since wooden products from it have a small specific weight and are most protected from the harmful effects of environmental factors.
The facing board is placed close to each other and fixed with screws to the frame. Upon completion, all irregularities are cut and machined with a grinder or fine sandpaper.
To increase the density of fit to the frame and maintain temperature in the garage, the edges of the valves can be sheathed with insulation.
Having prepared the door leaves, we proceed to the installation of metal hinges. In the case of attachment to the frame structure, the mounted parts are welded directly onto the frame, and, in the case of attachment to wooden bases, onto support columns. To determine the optimal location, it is necessary to retreat from the upper and lower boundary of the support, a distance equal to 1/4 of the total height of the pillars and outline the place. Then fix the hinges on the pillars and hang the sash.
The gates are almost ready, it only remains to be grounded and coated with antiseptics. After giving the necessary time to dry, proceed to the placement of accessories: handles, locks and bolts. To give a noble look, the gate can later be decorated with various forged elements.
They can be used as L-shaped metal rods located on the wings. For their operation, it is necessary to place two small lengths of a pipe with a diameter ensuring the free running of the rod in the intended places of entry into the ground, and also on each leaf to make a platform for fixing the fastener handle in a raised position.

The procedure for building wooden doors with your own hands is an easy task and is available for implementation each person. As with any construction work, to achieve all of the goals, it is necessary to strictly follow the advice of specialists, carry out accurate measurements and use quality material. Performing all of these points in conjunction with planned periodic maintenance will ensure reliable operation of the entrance gate over the years.
