About the Author

Cheryl is an electrical engineer, serial small business owner, and expert carpenter. She specializes in Victorian restoration through her business Urban Revivals LLC, which focuses on specialty upgrades for homes circa 1880 - 1910. Her workmanship and techniques in ebonizing and gilding have been featured in the Washington Post, Washington Times, Washingtonian magazine, and PaintPro magazine. Her work restoring historic stairways led to the first gates being built in 2003. Those gates in Washington DC were so popular that her next business - Gates2U - was born. Gates2U has shipped thousands of gates to the US and Canada since 2003 in six different styles, including outdoor deck gates, to homeowners and commercial businesses. Her books are targeted to the do-it-yourselfer who is comfortable around tools, and wants to add tasteful ornament to their home. She is also planning on writing another book about her gradual migration from the high-technology defense industry into home improvement, which should give hope to anyone looking to start their "second career"!

As a novice woodworker, I had no idea what I was getting into with this project. I read the book ahead of time and thought I could get this project done in a weekend. Not so much. There are several steps that require many hours of dry time. Luckily this wasn't a big deal. I feel very good with my finished product!

I received the paperback so I could build a gate for an older relative. My family member needs a gate at the top of steps that is high enough to prevent falls during the night. I also wanted it to be solid and withstand being bumped into with some force... and I couldn't get a contract to build it at a reasonable price.

I looked for a product for a long time and these plans fit the bill.

The slats really sink into the cross pieces and that they are reinforced as you build the gate making the gate really strong and easy to build - the project took me just one afternoon. I suspect it goes quicker if you build more of them!

We were able to make the gate nearly waist height, and finished it using the stain instructions in the book so it matched the stairway perfectly both in design and color.

All in all very helpful. I attached the hinges, and put in a doorstop for extra safety. The guide was very clear and every step was illustrated.

Great value.

I bought this kindle book because we needed a gate to hold back our dachshunds from our kitchen. It was interesting using plans from a Kindle, but I was able to read the figures and pictures very clearly. And, every step is broken down, and you are prompted to record important measurements for cutting, which you can take to your garage where your tools are. We built the gate, and it looks very good. We decided to keep it simple, and used a wipe-on poly finish, like it suggested, for a nice sheen. It goes into a lot of detail about how to create more elegant finishes if you want. The slats go deep into the top and bottom of the gate, which is what really makes this gate different from the compression gates. It can really hold back a determined pooch and withstand being jostled. Our installation area was a little unusual, because we had a kitchen cabinet on one side, but we followed the suggestions for mounting between two walls, and it worked out great. Very useful book.
