it depends on my wife’s mood…we have a large open dining room, living room, kitchen under a cath. ceiling, and sometimes she uses it in there to break up the space and at other times it is in our bedroom to hide the computer desk and keep it apart from the rest of the room.

Gorgeous screen. The contrast between the black walnut and the patinated copper
is just perfect.

I saw David Marks do this on his “Woodworks Show”. There is a lot involved & you have done a great job. Congratulations on a very fine effort.

Ooh La La! That is fine! I have not done any patina work. I think by the looks of this project I am missing out. That is fantastic. What do the feet look like at the bottom?

I agree with Grumpy. I saw the woodworks show also. Is that where you got your inspiration?

thanks for all your comments…yes, david marks was a partial inspiration (the gilding and patination), but I have always had an interest in screens. the feet (which david doesn’t do) are simple trestle feet, which gives the screen stability without being obtrusive.

Great Job Scott.

I beautiful screen. I’ve got a few pieces of veneer that seem that they might almost make a screen like that. The veneer is about 4’ X 5’. What are the dimensions on the screen.
