I made a gate from scrap wood and Tiny Turnings, making it up as I went along. 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. At first, I thought the spindles probably could have been closer together, but in the end, I like that the spindles are sparse. It allows more to be seen through it.
