Hey out there, I am new to the woodworking world. Me and wife recently moved from Portland, OR to Waxhaw, NC and moved in with her father. We have a German Shepherd that he didn’t want in the second level of the house, so my first woodworking project is this gate. It’s not pretty but it was my first and it works.

Not only does it work but seems to match the decor! Nice job. Maybe put a spring or auto close on it to prevent the ”WHO LEFT THE GATE OPEN?” stress with your father-in-law.

If you’re using an iphone or some other phones you must take the shots holding the phone horizontally (wide) to easily upload them here.
