    Puppygate

    I occasionally get some unusual requests for woodwork. Recently, I received a commission to build a puppy gate - just like a baby gate but to keep dogs in or out of a room.

    Puppygate is 51 inches wide (total) and the gate portion is 32". The height is 42" to keep the dogs from being able to jump over it. It's made from 5/4 red oak with early American stain and finished with lacquer.

    The first picture shows the new puppy (and third dog), Tosca, looking forlornly through the gate. The second picture is of the majority of the gate in my house, just stretched across an opening for the picture.

    That's the best looking puppy gate I've ever seen! or even imagined!!

    I've had a couple of those made for me over the years (I'll make my own now) but I always got ones that just looked like white-picket-fence garden gates.

    That's a gate fit for the Guggenheim Museum.

    That looks superb, Mike. Great workmanship, as per your usual.

    I gotta warn you, though, 42" isn't gonna slow down that lab very much if it wants to go over the gate. We had one about that height and our yellow dog (the smallest of our lot) figured out she could go over it, so I went a bit bigger...

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
