Robin Hills Portcullis Gateway

Robin Hills Scout troop built this portcullis gateway for their campsite at Kontiki 2011. Two A-frames support a gate that slides up along the slope of the front legs. This gate is a much bigger and sturdier portcullis than the one I blogged about back in 2006. The SketchUp model is available for download here.

Here is the gate closed at left, and open on the right.
