My wife wanted a divider for the living room and the dinning room. We have ordered new furniture it will be in a couple of weeks. So I design this and built it for her. I just wanted to post it to show everybody. I have not been making and posting a lot of projects lately.

Looks really great! What woods did you use, is this a permanent install?

Northwest 29, thanks for the comments. The woods I use was red oak and at the bottom I just use a fir 2×6 to mount it on to give it stability. Yes I make it to be permanent. However I can unscrew it and move it if I had to move some furniture in it. the opening is 41 inches so my sofa when I get it in should fit right through it. But if I have a problem I can unscrew the six screws in the smaller end put it right back in.

Hey Monty, I noticed the shot was from the “dog” side of the fence. Is this significant as to which side your wife will allow you on? :) Looks great and great solution to the dogs messing up the new furniture. I’ve seen my daughter go through several couches and recliners with her 3 dogs that this solution would have solved.

Monty that looks very nice, just like what I was hoping to do at the top of the stairs for kid containment. I made a rough prototype from construction grade pine and it never got taken down, it works, but it’s not pretty. What I would give to get out of the rust belt and down in the Columbia area, had a uncle in Irmo and I really like that area!
