This is a screen that I built for a clients entryway , used to block off an unwanted kitchen view.
The materials are spalted maple and old growth cedar. I roughcut both the cedar and maple with a chainsaw mill on a cutblock/ dried them in my kiln and milled and assembled them in the shop.
All of the maple panels are bookmatched to one another as they came from the same log. The inserts are roughly 7/16th” in the center of each and then shaped down to a shy ¼” to fit in the groove, it’s a very ‘’soft’’ raised panel. I did cut the groove in the stile the full length knowing that I would have to fill the lower ‘’feet’’ area but I thought the contrast would be nice.
Maple inserts finished with 3 coats satin poly before assembly. Cedar finished with clear watco oil.
Dimensions are 72” height X 14.5” per panel
Good coverage of 60” or 72 folded out.
