This is my favorite project I’ve done to date, and probably the one I am most proud of. The outer frame is 5/4, joinery is haunched mortise and tenon. The balusters are 3/4 and also use regular mortise and tenon. We have a wrought iron railing, so I wrapped it in walnut to fasten the gate to. Finish is one coat BLO, 3 coats arm-r-seal wiped on, then buffed out with steel wool and wax. Our daughter is 7 months old, so this was finished just in time.
