Project Throwback – Custom Baby Gate

My baby boy quickly when from barely moving at all to crawling up the stairs (and everything else) at full speed, which highlighted the need for baby gates.  This early won Spider-man like ability meant that the standard baby gate would only slow him down instead of stopping him completely.  I needed a custom solution. Something with no footholds. Enter my hand-crafted baby gate.

Goals

  • No footholds!
  • Easy to open for adults
  • Matches the rest of the house

Retro

  • These things held up great
  • I never got around to painting the wall-plates
  • I should have found a better way to attach the panels to the frame
