Our little one started moving around this week so we started thinking about a gate for the top of the stairs. After a friend offered us hers I decided that any plastic store bought junk wouldn’t meet my standards for safety and style.

I built this over the course of a week and a bit. I’ll let you all guess about the kind of wood I used. I really wanted to silver/nickel/chrome lift off hinges but our local HH doesn’t stock such.

I am mostly pleased with how it turned out and my wife is really pleased.
