I go to a couple of local lumber yards for material. They don't have an abundance but typically have what I need. If not they'll have it within a week. Closest borg is 100+ miles away.

Great Job on that! And what a great setting(y) Do you have acreage?
No acreage. This is our retirement location to I am trying to minimize daily/weekly maintenance. With all the trees I only need to mow every couple of weeks but on the other hand I
blow leaves almost daily for a month.

That's what I have in mind. I like the first type but not sure of the offset. The second type is more what I envisioned but with a lag on both sides.

I believe I can make this work. Mount the barrel to the jamb/post and the j-bolt to the stile. The stile is +/-4" dia. so will have to counter bore it to get the 2 1/2" gap on the small size.
The large one will work but seems like overkill.


Now for a latch. I like this concept.


It would need to mount on a 4" dia. stile and have a bar length of 6-7"
