I made 2 of these to block the stairs from our toddler. Made from cherry and ash for the spindles. My first project with mortise and tenon joinery. Much more fun than buying some. Thanks for looking.

It is even more fun making the kids. Nice work on both.

They look great! I bought a set when we had our first child and always kinda felt lazy that I did not attempt the project myself. We have another one on the way and I may have to give something like this a shot! Good work!

Nice looking. Even some of the commercial ones forget about making the bars all vertical so it’s harder to climb over them.

Very nice and well executed! I think you’ll find that this will be one of the projects you’re most proud of, mine is. Good choice on the joinery, it will be rock solid. I built mine using the same methods and it’s sustained being rammed with the cozy coup countless times without issue.
