great gate

problem: new adult rescue dog urgently needs to be gated out of front yard.

solution: I didn’t know why I needed it, but when the thrift store was prepared to send the futon bed frame to the metal recycler, I had it put on the floor for a few days at metal-salvage prices. It waited for me and sat in my barn waiting for this very moment.

Some cutting, scrounging through my junkyard inventory and a little inventive fabrication later, I had a great gate that was easy to use and worked perfectly.
