Watch The Router Workshop online: Episode 5 Fireplace Screen

This antique screen was used to hide the ashes and soot associated with a fireplace during the times when the fireplace was NOT lit. The table/screen surface was usually wood covered with a silk patterned material and glass. When the fireplace was used to produce heat, this screen could be made into a small table to play games or have tea in front of the warm fire. A revolving butterfly support is rotated below to support the table/screen surface on the screen legs. The legs and supports are pattern cut with the router. Watch episode #1405 on the Router Workshop for details of construction of the Fireplace Screen.
