my version of a child gate ,a lil over the top mabey ,but hopefuly inprinting a young mind to the beauty of wood . my client wanted somthing atop the stairs that was nice but functional still able to be an asset to the home the frame is barnwood and the slats came from a choice piece of quilted ,curly, flame ,spalted maple i had held on to for a couple of yrs some wood just demands the right project , i resawed the slats out of the slab and copped a couple that didnt fit in to the pattern for inlays down the road, clear semigloss lacqure popped it pretty good

At first glance it looks just like a gate but taking a closer look I can see you put a lot of thinking into it. Bookmatched lats with a slight angle to each one. A nice curve along the top and I also like to corner lap joints. Really suits the house also.

Nice work.
