20 years ago I built 3 sets of these privacy screens for my Neices wedding. When the wedding was over she took on set, his Mother and Father took one set and my wife and I took the last set (the ones pictured). All I had at the time was a skill saw , a jig saw , and a palm sander . The funny thing is this particular set has long out lasted her wedded bliss…..........................Schloemoe

Isn’t it funny how we made such great stuff with so few tools. I guess we just didn’t know any better ;^)

Nice Job!

Very NICE screens…

It just goes to show… you don’t need all of the fancy COOL power tools to do a good job!

You did GOOD!


Thank you for showing.

The proof is: Results won’t come from tools, but craftsmanship. Great job! I would guess the fabrics hang on dowels, right? I’m asking because I’m planning to build a set.
