I used wood glue on the crossbeams and clamped them in position. The next day when the glue had dried I removed the clamps and drilled holes in the crossbeams to accept short pieces of hardwood dowel.When I finished adding the dowels I painted the gates with brown acrylic paint.

Working on the Gates
To make working on the gates easier I first removed them from the wall. After studying screen grabs from King Kong (1933) provided to me by Eric Kessler I decided to add two crossbeams to each side of the gates.
