Ivy Hollow - gate

by brae  

I made a gate from scrap wood and Tiny Turnings, making it up as I went along.

I thought the spindles probably could have been closer together, but it turned out well so I went with it.

The stain is Minwax Dark Walnut. I used brass Houseworks hinges to make it operational.

Right now, I have it propped in place with wax. Once I have the final layout, I'll add a stop on the side of the counter to keep the gate from swinging too far.

In the end, I like that the spindles are sparse - allows more to be seen through it. :]

What a fabulous gate - just what you need to stop unwanted visitors behind the counter. Anna x

It looks like a photo from 1:1 interior... Wow.

Plus the spindles, for the scale, are thick enough that to have too many would look overdone. Hinges! Oh dear, my sympathies. But it looks wonderful!

Thank you! :>>

Hinges don't bother me much anymore - I still swear while installing them, but they don't bother me. :))
