American Fire Screen: Almost Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, my fire screen is almost finished, it just needs a final sanding, stain and a finish. Two of the corners of the frame will only be glued once the stain and finish has been put on if you are wondering about the gap.

I am quite pleased that the frame can slide up and down and stay in position, I was worried that it would want to fall down to the bottom.

Well, the drawers what can I say, except that it was quite a job, the drawes are only 3/32" (2,4mm) high. I am really happy at how it turned out. Only 4 days left till I leave for Castine!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS: I really need some photographing lessons!!!!

Elga , it is gorgeous, stunning, wonderful ( and I have mislaid my dictionary, so no more words of praise on the shelf here for now). Honest, it is GRRRREAT! Well done!
It will be bringing a lot of bucks, I think!!!

Like Elly Said Elga, it will do great at auction! It's right up the sleeve of most people's interior design objective. But most of all it's made with a good eye for detail. That's what sets it apart.
