Oak Stair Gate

I fitted this oak stair gate for a customer a few weeks ago to stop their dogs from going upstairs.
 
I was really pleased with how it turned and it would be great for anyone with kids who wanted something more in keeping with a period property.
Can be made and fitted to order.

  1. Makes a nice little gate, Kev. Thanks for sharing! Did you make little mortise and tenons? How did you attach it to the wall? One more ;). How did you finish it? Dan.

    1. It's all morticed and tenoned. Should be pretty strong! I attached it to the wall using rawl plugs and screws which I then pelleted with oak to hide the holes. The finish was applied by the painter but it was an oil called Osmo

    2. I've heard of Osmo. Seems to be the "go to" finish in your neck of the world. Looks great. I would love to give it a try in the future.

  2. I would say that you are quite the craftsman, but after seeing that archway . . . I think that artist better describes you. Kevin, your work is amazing :)

  3. Hi Kev

    What would be the cost of purchasing a stair gate similar to this one?

    Kind regards Ray

    1. Sorry for such a late reply Ray. Depends on many things: Your location, the walls it's being fitted to, the size of it, etc. Let me know some more details and I can work it out for you.
