Well I call them screens for lack of a better word. I Don’t exactly remember where the idea came from but this was one of my first projects in my new home. I simply took some 3/4 pine strips and mitered them. Each screen is 24 inches square getting progressively smaller. I left them sitting on my bench for some time because I could not decide how I wanted to “close” them out in the center. I toyed around with a several ideas but settled on a mirror for the center and a square with a hole in it for the other two. I was going to stain them but decided on paint. I take no credit for the pictures hanging within the grouping, I bought them. Thats all folks.

Thanks for the complements. To join them I just used glue and brad nails. At the time I had just got my brad nailer. Due to my inexperience I had a few blow outs. Lets just say that quite alot of wood filler was used. Thats the main reason I painted them instead of staining them. Thanks again for taking an interest.

Scrolling a Chinese symbol in the circle…would give it a true oriental screen flavor.

A great idea. If you’re still looking for ideas in the center take a look at the Craftsman (and some other brands exist) router inlay kit. Its a lot of fun to play with and you can make some nice designs that’d go perfect in your centers, for sure.
