Gate Fasteners

With the constant expansion and contraction of the wood due to moisture and temperature changes, the wood around the fastener becomes misshapen and enlarged and will no longer hold the joint properly causing sagging and failure.

At Williams Gate Works, we combine the time proven strength of mortise and tenon joinery with marine grade epoxy. Mortise and tenon joints have been used in woodworking for thousands of years. As stated earlier the mortise and tenon joint and marine grade epoxy together make a joint that is actually stronger than the wood itself.
