  1. Barn Door Baby Gate For A Dog Sitter

    A customer of mine watches dogs of all sizes. During feeding time she needed to separate them as well as keep them out the kitchen when cooking. She found a picture online she liked and asked me to re-create it. Made from 1x pine. Some tool and saw marks left in, others added. Distressed with...
  2. Rustic Baby Gate

    Family member didn't want a store bought baby gate. They wanted something that would match the style of their home. I made this out of carsiding and 1×4 pine. I drilled through holes on the sides to run heavy duty zip ties around the railing posts. It works well but I wouldn't recommend this...
  3. The Grandson-Baby Gate

    So I am posting my first project on Lumberjocks. My daughter recently had our first grandchild. (9 weeks old today) She asked if I would make a pair of gates for the stairwell to keep the pets upstairs and the baby downstairs safe once he starts crawling around. As it meant buying a mortising...
  4. Getting ready to crawl...Grandma to the rescue

    My step-daughter and son-in-law asked me to make a sturdy baby gate for the stairs to their basement - one better and more sturdy than they could purchase in a store. Oh boy, that's serious grandma responsibility on the line! They wanted the top and bottom to match the stair railing already in...
  5. Baby Gate from White Ash

    I made this back in April when my son started moving around, and we wanted to make sure his movements are only horizontal and not vertical. I actually wanted to avoid having to build something, since I have more than enough projects that need to be done around the house. We looked at several...
  6. Baby Gate / Pet Gate

    I built this and it was easy. Keeps baby in and pets out. You can make it several ways but i used rail and stile… you can see the groove where there arent vertical slats but who cares its temporary. But I wanted something that matched the house, not some cheap walmart thingy. Quick was key. Its...
  7. Baby Gate

    Our little one started moving around this week so we started thinking about a gate for the top of the stairs. After a friend offered us hers I decided that any plastic store bought junk wouldn't meet my standards for safety and style. I built this over the course of a week and a bit. I'll let...
  8. Baby/Dog Gate

    We moved in to our house last year and really did not use the upstairs much because we did not have kids. At the time our kids were our dogs and they liked to run up and down the stairs. So the search for a dog gate that would work on our stairs began. I looked and found a few that could work...
  9. Free standing baby gate/barrier

    After recently having a baby boy I had completed most of the baby proofing stuff people normally do but I had a couple other challenges there were not simple solutions to. One of them was the fact that I have an aquarium and some cat food bowls that needed to be kept separate from the baby...
  10. Double Hinge Baby Gate

    My wife and I have a little one on the move, so a baby gate was needed. I wanted something that would swing both ways with a fast and easy latch, so this is what I came up with. I couldn't seem to find a latch that was quite what I was looking for so, I made my own spring loaded pin latch. So...
  11. Oak dog gate for the mudroom

    Red oak dog gate. Spindles are datoed into the bottom boards so it can't sag. Boards are held together with cleft over cut nails. Latch is a spring loaded 1" dowel with a handle to slide it back.
  12. Ugly Baby Fencing (The fencing. Not the babies.)

    A client asked me to make them a partition wall to keep babies away from the front door of her baby genius academy. They had the smallest budget know to man so I told her what I could produce with her budget and she was thrilled. I didn't really make any money off this job but it's in one of the...
  13. Dog Gate

    I wanted to build a dog gate so I could cut off my dog's access to the back of the house when I wanted to. For the past year I have been using a regular grey, plastic baby gate and was just tired of always having to step over it. I made this from some poplar I had laying about, then used...
  14. Black Walnut Baby Gate

    This is my favorite project I've done to date, and probably the one I am most proud of. The outer frame is 5/4, joinery is haunched mortise and tenon. The balusters are 3/4 and also use regular mortise and tenon. We have a wrought iron railing, so I wrapped it in walnut to fasten the gate to...
  15. Oak baby gate

    First of two baby gates for the house. Made from 3-1/4 oak flooring I picked up at an estate sale this summer, along with some paneling from a more recent estate sale. General process: - One pass to rip off the tongue of each board on the table saw - Another pass to rip off the groove side -...
  16. baby gate

    Stairs baby gate for my nephew.
  17. Not Simple Baby Gate

    I just made this baby gate for some friends. They wanted to keep cost down so I used construction grade lumber. With the exception of where the gate mounts to either wall (2×6's on one side and 1×4 on the other), the whole thing is made out of 2×4's (balusters ripped to 1 1/2" x 1 1/2") using...
  18. Baby gate

    With our daughter getting more active and adventerous it was time to get a baby gate in front of the stairs. I hate the look of your standard consumer production gates so I told my wife I was going to build it. I ran through a lot of ideas as far as latch systems and sprung hinges but ended up...
  19. Baby Gate

    Last night, I finished the baby gate project I'd been contemplating for a few months. Thanks to some design ideas from projects posted on this site by NewPilgrim, Rob, and CMC06 I was able to come up with a functioning gate. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it does the job and...
  20. Baby gates

    This is my attempt at keeping our daughter alive :) After many weeks at looking at cheap plastic gates that you either need to screen into the post ramp or that just stay in place by friction, I decided to come up with my own version that would fit better in the house, and most importantly...
