This is made with sapele for the screen and teak for the hand rail. While not designed by me, it was constructed by me. And there appears to be no appropriate tags for this.

Very nice. How is it all joined? Or how did you cut it?

Pieces are individually cut, then glued and doweled, put it together in approximately 8 inch sections, it was 13’2” long before cut down to 12”2 to fit the opening.

unfortunately no, do not have better pics at this time, there is a table blocking the other view, and haven’t had an opportunity to move it in the customer’s house.

nice work.

did you mean Chinese (in the title)?
if so – what makes this one Chinese as opposed to a non-Chinese screen/partition/half-wall?

Looks great. A lot better than the usual run of the mill one. Looks like it took a long time.
