Hey Folks,

Well, the privacy screen project is finally done. It's a three panel articulating screen, framed in lye washed cherry, with a Douglas Fir infill, and Gaboon Ebony accents. There's even a turquoise infill in a check at the bottom of one of the stiles.

Image

It's 6' tall, and tonight I discovered that it doesn't fit in the display window because when I built the platform for the window, I measured for 6', but forgot to allow for the carpet thickness. That's not so bad, but when I went back to my original plan, I noticed that it said 5' 11 1/2". I'm sure that I said, "That's dumb, why would I do that?", and then proceeded to make it 6' tall. :-? :roll:

Image

So, it sits behind the platform, but in front of the curtained backdrop. Kris thinks it works even better that way because it shows off the tops better. I'm just glad that it fits at all now.

Image

Cheers,
Tom

spectacular. I like the simplicity of it.

Did you consider cutting 1/2" off the legs?

That display will certainly draw some eyeballs, and oh's and ah's. You might even want to call the local press to come down for an interview. :)

That looks stunning!

And a fantastic backdrop for the storefront display.
Honestly, I do like that you can see the top .. it looks more natural than it would with a curtain in front.

LMAO.
I can't tell you how many times I've second guessed myself in this very way.

Are you still thinking about painting bird images on the panels? Looks awfully good as it is, though the birds might be the final touch (or the might be over the top. I guess it depends on taste.)

I think before doing something permanent like painting, it would be better to get some removable decals to try it out first. :)
