As my one year old daughter found the joy of climbing the stairs at home, I had to hurry up and finish a safety gate – a project on my task list since she was born.
The design process took me a while. Besides the regular need to meet the taste of my dear customers – family, I had to solve some technical requirements such as an ability to take the door out of the way when not in use for a longer term. The solution we decided to go for was 180 degree swivel of the door, so it will stay on a wide step instead of bother in the living room.
Wood: European beech
Finish: Stain + three coats of water based polyurethane
