A client asked me to make them a partition wall to keep babies away from the front door of her baby genius academy. They had the smallest budget know to man so I told her what I could produce with her budget and she was thrilled. I didn’t really make any money off this job but it’s in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Seattle, so I considered the loss a marketing expense.

I made a stained and finished sample piece, which she loved, so I went for it.

It was made from kiln dried 2x and 1/4” ply. Transting for the color, and ML Campbell Royalaq for the finish. I chose a finish that doesn’t have a mil limit so it can be touched up easily if a baby gnaws a chunk off.

I was asked twice that year to make pieces with the “old man round-over”. It was slightly painful, but it was work and I’m grateful to have it!

A little barbed wire would have been much cheaper.

Very nice.
I used electric dog collars with invisible fence to train my 3 kids.

Had to check this out just because of the title.

That colour is, um, distinct!

Nicely done.

A reliable and sturdy fence, like the color contrast and the design. Great job for a tight budget!
