    Hi

    I am building my driveway gate and currently building the timber frame.

    In the INSIDE corner of the frame, I am using 90degree corner brackets.

    What should I use on the OUTER part of the 90degree corner on the frame (where the horizontal part meets the vertical part.

    Would nails do the job?

    Cheers
