So my project had to do with protecting my ten month old and learning a new skill. I was tired of turning my back for just a moment only to turn back around only to see my daughter crawling towards the stairs so; I decided to make a heavy duty safety fence for her.
I’m not sure about the style of this make but – I can tell you it’s very strong! I added spring loaded hinges to make it close behind you and also to give some assistance when you’re carrying the precious one. Its made mostly of oak and pine. It’s stained with a light oak and red mahogany. The latch is a window latch that I had laying around and so it works well.
Hope you like it!

Great idea to keep the little one from the steps. Just wait about 12 or 13 years then look out!

We had a fellow at our local gun club that had a tee shirt- Yes, you can date my daughter. I’ll be in the living room, cleaning my gun.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I do love my daughter…knothead62….I like the t-shirt that says, “Yes, I love my daughter so if you wanna date her know this: ‘Whatever you do to her I do to you!’”
