I just completed this last project, mobile privacy screens. Made out of pressure treated wood, they are 53’’-long and 43’’-high. I wanted them to be stable yet light, reason why I built-up the end posts using 2X6 to sandwich the 2X4 rails or crossmembers. The slats are 1X6 that I ripped in two half. By stagging the slats I knew the wind would flow gently through them. The end posts have been capped with stacked squares of 2X8, 2X6 and 2X4. As simple as it can be. I think they look great even if simple to make. The base molding is made out of more 1X6 and the feet out of 2X6 with a 1X6 sole pads.

 

To cut the arch, I bent a thin stip of wood between the two end posts and drew the curve with a pencil. After cutting all the slats with my jigsaw outfitted with a small tooth blade, I sanded smooth the tops and sharps corners.
