I want to build a gate with a curved top. I was wondering if it would work if I drilled the holes for the pvc in the wood, say 3/4" into the piece of wood and then drilled screws in to secure in place while making a slight curve to the overall piece of wood. I know I would need help, someone bending while I screwed the pvc in place. I plan on each of the gates to be 5' long using 1x2's for the frame and pvc for poles. I was worried that the wood might break. Will a slight damping of the wood make it more plyable? I saw a frame made with blocks of wood once and wanted to know if there was an easier way to do this?
