And now for something completely different…...........
I am in the process of replacing every single air register in my house with wooden ones, with every one of them being different from the others.
I’ve knocked off pretty much of the ones on my first floor, so I took a look around upstairs to see which one was next. Instead of looking down at the floor for the registers, my eye immediately focused on the large, white, ugly return register that was placed high on the knee wall in our bedroom. That’s GOTTA go….........
I was given a piece of 1/2” thick mahogany a few months ago and it was begging to become something, so I edge glued up two pieces and started work an hour or so later.
That evening, this replaced that ugly metal screen. I call the design “Art Deco”.
It’s 10×16 inches and a tad less than 1/2” thick. To keep one from seeing the nasty pipeworks behind, I placed a double layer of window screening across the back – air still flows quite freely.
Finish is simply rattle-can lacquer.
Affixed to the wall with a square of stick-on Velcro at each corner.
Not too shabby!
