Not much time in the shop this last year. Having a new baby will do that…however, some things the baby needs can be made in the shop. Like baby gates!
Simple frame and panel gates, 1/4” ply fir panels and 3/4” solid fir frames. One of the doors will remain after my son no longer needs baby gates, so I added a bit more detail to it. Taking the design from many craftsman style doors. Used a simple sliding bolt on three of the doors, but painted them (and all hardware) with a rubbed bronze spray paint. The latch on the craftsman style door is a transom latch from Lee Valley.
Fun to make, quick to finish and practical…all in all, time well spent.
thanks for looking.
