These are made from all found items .the sides and back are vintage bifold doors and the doors are antique windows all the hard ware is items from other pieces of antiques or vintage items .When I finish one of these it usually measures about 50'' wide x 6.1/2' tall or sometimes more and weigh almost 150-200 lbs they are very sturdy .Thats my husband and grandson in the pic .(they come in handy when i'm finished with one of these to help move it)
