We have just started raising a guide-dog puppy, so we needed a way of keeping her in or out of the kitchen. I made this gate, ironically enough, from an incense cedar fence pailing (my current “exotic” wood of choice).
Once again all ripped and “thickness planed” on the table saw. All mortise and tenon joinery. I used magnets embedded in the stiles and in the kitchen bench so the gate stays put once it is opened.
The latch was a sliding door-latch that I hack-sawed in half… brass goes well with the cedar.
Finished the whole thing with a few coats of poly.
The last picture is the fearsome beast we hope to contain… her name is Hanalei.
