Gone is the rotting wood! Now, it’s a metal gate with chevron pattern and glass detail. Ritius sketched out the design, welded everything himself, and installed the pretty new gate on his own. (The glass in the center is actually a set of coasters!) You can see how he did it, step by step, with photos, over on Reddit.

Thanks Ritius!
