This was made for a client living in a modified church out in the country. He wanted something he could move around easily in his extremely large space to block the sun and to sketch composition ideas in chalk for his photography.
The posts have double tenons running into the wheeled feet and all the rest of the joinery is mortise and tenon. All the mortises are dug out with a fostner bit and hand held drill and then chiseled clean.
Except for the feet I couldn’t clamp this because it was too big to transport assembled. It had to be assembled on site so I used really big screws that I later blackened.
The finish is orange NGR and Goudy Golden Oak covered with several coats of linseed oil.
The board is 1/2 inch MDF with a sprayed chalkboard paint. It worked very well.

It looks great, that linseed oil really brings out the grain, I think. I bet your client really enjoys this.
