Back in the saddle

kumiko screen.jpg
Did a quick model this afternoon, for my first posting here in several months. This is a four-panel teak screen, made in the Philippines in the 1960s. Based the model on an image from the 1stdibs.com web site. The miters on the kumiko-style panels aren't perfect, and there isn't much joinery. But it was a fun model to create.

Lovely :thumb: I’ve always liked these older style freestanding screens. :thumb:

SketchUp's raw presentation style is always so much better than a render to convey good modelling.

Renders can hide little errors but raw SU done right is just yummy!

Thanks, everyone. I used to do renders, but then Shaderlight went out of business. I haven't had the time to find another rendering program that's affordable and easy to use. Guess I have to choose one or the other.

You might take a look at Twilight Render. IMO it is pretty easy to use and the price is good.
