Just a baby gate I whipped up to keep the little ones away from the stairs. stained to match the cabinets and trim in the house. Arch top was fun to build as it was the first arch top panel I have ever made. When the day comes to take it back down there will be two screw hole on each wall to fill and then just repaint. Latch is on the backside so little paws can’t reach it. Critique and enjoy!

Looks great!! I put up a door recently after my 2 year old would pull up a dining room chair to try to look down the stairwell

Awesome job, my wife has been hounding me about a baby gate, I was planning on trying to match the railing and have it roll on some type of track, but I am really liking the arch!

Nice arched top gives the gate some flare. Matches the floor pretty well also. Is latch low enough that junior can’t operate it by reaching over? Don
