Baby Gates

My lil guy started crawling. I own a tri level house. I didn’t want plastic gates in the main living area. I made these out of beetle kill pine. I had to reinforce the wall with more 2×4 pieces to hold up the gates. The hand rail slightly sags from the weight of the right door. All in all, its a success.

Cool idea. Wish I thought of something like this 35 years ago. Nice work.

wow…we hung a huge gate in our living room this week but its black metal and looks no where near as cool as these do.
