Look!: Homebrew Baby Safety Gate

AT New York slinked it, and now we're sharing it with Chicago. Readers Joel and Maria, designers in Miami, shared this homemade, custom baby gate with us recently. There's already a thread going over at Blue Ant Studio. They say:

Using regular 1x2 poplar wood slabs that you can get at the local Home Depot and some nails/screws and a latch from an outside patio door, I was able to fashion a not so hideous device that swings open like a dream...

Questions have unfolded surrounding the design and safety features, so if this is a topic of interest, chime in!

We'll be checking in with Joel and Maria regularly as they blog modern design (not just kid stuff) from Miami.
