    Build and install custom baby gates at my house

    $400

    East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    1st Sep 2016

    I need multiple baby gates installed at my house in East Melbourne. I want some nice gates constructed as described in the instructions below extracted from the Yellow Brick Home website which explains how to build these gates. The measurements and math will need to be adjusted for my space, so it will be necessary to come and inspect. MATERIALS USED FOR A 32″ DOORWAY: 4 – 1″x2″x8′ (for the ribs) 1 – 1″x4″x6′ (for the top and base) Pack of 1″ hinges Surface bolt 1″ brad nails 1″ drywall screws Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover spray primer (flat white) Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover spray paint, satin (blossom white) TOOLS USED: Brad nailer: We used the Arrow ET200 Compound miter saw (for making cuts) Mini Kreg jig Screwdriver / Drill Square Tape measure / Ruler Putty knife Sanding blocks: medium + fine Mouse sander WHAT WE DID: Kiira’s doorway is 32″ wide, so we wanted our finished size to be 31.5″ wide, leaving 1/4″ inch on either side – just enough for the door to swing freely, but with enough space for the hinges and latch. Using the 1x4s, we made two cuts at 31.5″ for the top and base and three cuts from the 1x2s at 26.75,” giving our gate a height of approximately 34″ tall. We laid them out for a dry fit, then used our mini Kreg jig to make pocket holes and secure these 5 planks together. Scott cut a small, triangular slug piece of 1×4 (the same shape and size as the illustration below) that we used as our guide for the rest of the project. Using that slug, we marked 2.25″ inches to the right and up from the middle, then did the same to the left and up again. Not wanting to over complicate the process, all of our cuts would be made at a 45-degree angle. To get started, We measured from mark to mark (for example, our first measurement followed the 45-degree line, below), knowing that would be our inside cut for each rib. The first several 45-degree cuts were made opposite each other, giving your first handful of ribs a trapezoid shape. We worked on mirroring each side as we went along, making sure to keep our spacing as straight as possible. Using our brad nailer, we secured each rib in place with 2 brads at the top and bottom of each piece. This was slightly tricky due to the angles (we had a few missteps), but it did make the job go much faster. The hardest part of the whole process, simply put, is the math. But as long as you made your marks every 2.25,” you should be fine! However, once you get past the bottom corners (we started at the bottom and worked our way up), your 45-degree cuts will stop being trapezoidal and turn into a parallelogram (see below) – and once you’ve made it almost to the top and your ribs have reached the middle corner, they’ll turn back into trapezoids. We were very mindful of this as we made our cuts, working slowly and deliberately, measuring twice (sometimes thrice!) and cutting once. When we reached the last remaining ribs, we needed to take off the top 1×4 to make room for our brad nailer, then secure the cap back on once every rib was in place. We did have a few planks that felt slightly loose, so we added pocket holes were necessary. Finally, we could sand (we used the mouse sander first, followed by the sanding blocks for fine tuning), spackle any gaps and pocket holes, and paint it! We waited until we got to Kiira’s house before we installed the hinges and latch, which turned out to be a good thing as we needed to make some slight modifications to her door frame. While her ornate molding is stunning, it was too thick at the bottom, which wouldn’t allow for the gate to swing completely open when not in use. We remedied the situation with a thin piece of scrap wood – something that will be different for everyone (and will likely not be a problem at all with more modern molding).
