Fraley & Co / Laux Installed

Pictures our client kindly sent of our shoji screens in his bathroom remodel. First shoji door needed a lock set and hinging so was built with stiles and rails heavy enough to accommodate both.

A built-out cabinet with our shoji to fit. All shoji built in Beech with Port Orford Cedar kumiko and Beech lower shoji panels. The sliding and fixed shoji have 0.3 mm Kinwashi Warlon paper as the inset material. The hinged shoji door needed added rigidity so we used 2.0 mm Amber Warlon Acrylic.

Fraley + Company

Custom Beech Shoji Screens to span 74" x 92", with Port Orford Cedar Kumiko, Kinwashi Warlon laminated paper, Beech lower shoji door panels and inlaid Ebony door pulls. The little shoji in front is an interior window inset that will be fixed in place.

A Shoji panel that is built with heavier stiles and rails since it needs to be hinged. Panel size is 28" x 80" and the insert material is Amber Warlon Acrylic to add rigidity to the frame.

Two of the six other shoji screens that fill out this order. 
We did not have enough room to spread them out for a picture.

To protect them in their journey, a very stout crate built with 3/4" thick plywood.

Beech shoji, to span 63" x 89-1/2", with Port Orford Cedar kumiko, 2.0 mm Warlon Acrylic, our fancy kumiko pattern #18 and inlaid Ebony door pulls.

The Warlon Acrylic looks dark because it is very translucent and showing the shadow behind the shoji screen since it's leaning up against a wall.
