Wampler & Sons

Beech shoji screens with 0.45 White Warlon laminated paper and inlaid Ebony door pulls.

 The wood ledger, track and valance assembly.  The ledger screws to the wall , the screw heads will be inside the groove shown in the ledger. Then the valance clips to the ledger with the metal "french cleats". The end of the valance is mitered to return to the wall and cover the end of the ledger and track.   A neat clean system for a barn door type tracking ,where the shoji side over a wall face.

The assembly all together, viewed from the underside.

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.
