This is a simple parallelogram stair gate I saw on designed by Matthias Wandel. He makes some pretty amazing stuff.

Our front entryway doesn’t have very much space so this gate works perfectly. It folds up the stairs instead of opening into the front door. I still have to finish it, but can’t decide if I want to stain it the same color as the railing or paint it white.

Made out of pine scraps I had laying in the garage.

That is so neat the way it folds up and away.

Well, we use ours for our dog so it’s never too late I suppose :)

Now that is one great gate with a lot of practical uses. Thanks for sharing, just added it to my projects list.
