Introduction: Folding Football Gate

About: Lately I have started to built furniture by myself

Recently we moved to house with garden and my kids started to like football so I made them a football gate.

I had to make it folding so it won't block all the garden and doesn't take to much space when they are not plaing

Step 1: Tools & Materials


  • 2 X 100CM Pinewood
  • 2 X 75CM Pinewood
  • 2 X 150CM Pinewood
  • Screws
  • Goal net
  • Black/White spray color
  • 2 door hinges
  • Ring screws
  • Duct tape
  • 3 Long nails


  • Rotate tool – Dremel
  • Impact driver- Makitar Cabinet Drawer Door 1.5 inch Length

Step 2: Connecting the Woods

I have connected the woods in 2 parts like on the pictures with wood screws

Step 3: Hinges Connection / Folding Mechanism

The hinges were placed between the 2 wood parts connected with wood screws

Step 4: Stability

In order to keep the gate stable I have med holes and placed long nails in them, I needed to use a long drill about 30 CM long so I have made one from another nail - cutting his head and shaving the other edge

Step 5: Colors

I placed duct tape on specific places on the wood in order to cover some places to make separation between the colors and painted black and white

Step 6: Connecting the Net

I have connected the net with small 1 inch wood screws
