I made this for a neighbor who wanted to separate his conference table from his employees working at their desks. He wanted to use some cedar post and make more of a rustic partition. I had some cedar in the shop so I made a mock up of some cedar and walnut. The cedar was planed, but he wanted to leave it rough. He did like the walnut though.

This is what I came up with, it is 9 feet tall and 8 feet wide. The cedar had crack with made cutting the joints fun. I pegged the cedar to wedge it between the floor and ceiling and used a forked -wedge tusk tenon for the walnut. He is going to put some art or metal in the center of it.

Good looking solution for the problem at hand. It really goes well with the flooring.

I love the separation or rather the illusion of separation this creates. Great Job

Interesting combination of styles here, as well as your choice of joinery and extra detail. I especially like the tenons.
