This is my first attempt so please bare with me. This gate was made due to a store bought child gate breaking. I used 1 pallet, cut in 12 pieces, ×2 T hinges, ×1 simple gate latch. I screwed a piece of wood to the wall as the wall was not plumb and I find it much easier to screw the gate to this once completed. After finding the width required (44") i simply cut pieces to fit, similarly the same for the height (30"). Using app 50 screws in total and then assembled the gate, I presented the gate into the space just to make sure it was correct. I made sure the hinges were placed correctly before fixing permanently. Then with a piece of off cut I screwed to the wall first then screwed the gate latch to this, (you don't have to do this step it's just the way I do it).
