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.
