Crafting Your Dream Entrance: How to Design Your Ideal Custom Wood Gate

Welcome to Pacific Gate Works, where we transform your wood front gate ideas into reality. Since 2003, we've been weaving craftsmanship and creativity into every wooden gate we produce. From walkway wonders to grand driveway entrances, we specialize in crafting custom wood gates that stand as a testament to your style and personality.

At Pacific Gate Works, we understand that your gate isn't just a barrier; it's an introduction to your home, a statement of your taste, and a reflection of your lifestyle. That's why we're dedicated to working closely with you to ensure that every detail of your wooden gate entryway is meticulously tailored to your vision.

Our approach is simple:  we believe in building relationships, not just custom gates. When you choose Pacific Gate Works, you're not just purchasing a product; you're embarking on a journey with a team of passionate craftsmen who are committed to bringing your dreams to life.

Elevate your backyard sanctuary with a privacy gate.

Gate Design: Where Inspiration Meets Customization 

Our website showcases a range of standard premade gate designs that serve as the foundation for your imagination. These "standard products" encompass both walkway gates and wooden driveway gates, each handcrafted with precision and care.

But here's the beauty of it: while our catalog offers a starting point, the customization possibilities are endless. Want to add hand-hammered copper caps for a touch of elegance? Done. Prefer a clear protective outdoor finish to withstand the elements? Consider it done. 

Imagine the endless possibilities to match your personal style.

Signature Gate Design and Beyond

One of our signature design features a classic arch top gate with vertical tongue and groove boards set within the outer frame—a timeless aesthetic that exudes charm and sophistication. However, we understand that your vision may deviate from the standard, and that's where our years of expertise shines.

Maybe you love the shape of our timeless signature gate but envision the tongue and groove boards running horizontally instead of vertically to match the design of your home. No problem. At Pacific Gate Works, any of our catalog products can be customized to suit your preferred style, ensuring that your gate is as unique as you are. 

Tailor our beloved Rose City design with customizable picket spacing and sizes to suit your preferences.


Your Design, Our Expertise

Have a specific design in mind that you can't find anywhere else? Whether it's a photo you snapped, an image saved on a Pinterest board, or a modern farm house gate you spotted on Instagram, we're here to bring your vision to life. Simply upload a photo of the gate, and we'll provide you with a comprehensive quote that includes price, lead time, and design consultation services.

With our team of design and build craftsmen, we're equipped to handle even the most intricate customizations. Using AutoCAD, we can create entirely tailor-made designs tailored to your specifications. And the best part? You'll have the opportunity to review, modify, and approve the design before we begin the build process—ensuring that every detail meets your expectations.


We meticulously package every gate to ensure safe delivery to your home.
