    I would like to see examples of gates that can be hung on t-posts. I would especially like to see if it's possible to have a gate that is durable and not ugly, without having to concrete the support posts in the ground. [​IMG]
    Thanks in advance!

    You wouldn't necessarily have to concrete the posts to support them, you could also run a wire at an angle from the top of the gate post to the bottom of the next post in the fence line, this will give you a good support so the gate won't sag

    No, but I have a hog panel attached to a 2 x 4 with a stable for a hing and it works great. I will get a photo later today

    I mounted a 2x2 onto a Tpost by drilling holes in the back web of the Tpost and screwing the wood on thru the holes, then mounted the door hinges onto the attached 2x2...does that make sense? Here's a pic.

    Not sure what you mean by t-posts? Here are a few gates I have made around our house.

    This is a tpost

    Cast iron posts that are pounded into the ground to hold welded or woven wire fencing.
