 I wanted a room divider/screen to have as a family tree photo display. I could not find anything I liked, so I decided to design my own and make it. 

The first 2 pictures are the finished product. The 3rd picture is my design with sample photos inserted.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial. It was not a real easy  project, mostly time consuming, but well worth it in the end.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

MATERIALS:

3/8" steel rod (approximately 48' total for each section)
Welding rods
4X8 sheet of plywood (can be scrap)
6 - 2X6 pieces of lumber (each 12"-18" long, again can be scrap)
2" screws
3/8" hollow rod (3' piece, but you'll only need about 1/2)
5 - 5/16" square u-bolts
Binder clips (4 for each picture frame, we needed 104)
Paint

TOOLS: 

See picture.
Now THAT is cool! I'm looking at your work and thinking/planning something in copper now....Well done!
Thanks. I was checking out your potato tower. Great job! I did one last year as well. you can check it out here: http://tru-featsandaccomplishments.blogspot.com/2010/05/colossal-potato-tower-venture.html
Nice!! I think I'll try the layered bit with straw this year if I decide to grow potatoes again. That would keep me from slicing my arms up when trying to line the sides with newspaper to keep the dirt in the bin. I like it!! Thanks for the link!
