How to Build a Pet Gate or Baby Gate Using Supplies from your Local Hardware Store

Build custom wood gates just like the carpenters at, who’ve shipped gates to homes across the USA. Do-it-yourselfers can now make a mission-style pet gate or baby gate using big box store moldings, a saw, drill and hammer or brad gun. No routing; straight cuts only. Get all the instructions you need to build a swing gate in your choice of wood. Fully illustrated. It tells you how to measure, cut, assemble, finish, and hang your gate using hinges. Wall, post, and door mount instructions included. Typical material costs for a gate are $40 (less in pine). View the Gallery of Gates at for pictures of Mission Style gates, ideal for modern and traditional decors.

This second edition has more than doubled in size, with more pictures, explanations for assembly, latching, and details for how to paint or stain a gate. This book was created by the carpenters at Gates2U, a Maryland manufacturer, shipping gates since 2003. Gates2U gates were featured in the August 2004 “Kid’s Room” Washingtonian magazine. This style looks great treated with simple wipe-on polyurethane, painted, or stained.
