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.
