Recently my wife and I discovered that our two year old was able to climb our baby gates and access our stairs. Obviously, not a good thing. So I set out to build a new gate. During my research I came across a video by Matthias Wandel of woodgears.ca and found the inspiration for my build.
And here it is. The gate is made from walnut and maple and instead of opening out from the bottom of the stairs it can open in, towards the stairs.
