A lovely set of doors in Sapele with white 2.0mm Warlon acrylic insert material. 
These were photographed on a white background, the small screen in front clearly shows the amount of translucence of the acrylic. 
Elvis had another gig, so he was unable to provide scale- the tall doors are a bit over 7'.

These are for a pocket application, the inner door stiles are wider, so when the shoji door is closed there is the same reveal all around, with 3/4" hidden in the pocket. 

This shows the beautiful ribbon grain of the Sapele.

Lathrop Douglass Architects

Beech Shoji Screens with Golden Flax paper.
These are made as a three unit set to go in an interior wall.
 The two larger Shoji form a bi-pass set and will have a track top and bottom and side jambs (not shown). The small shoji panels are fixed - one is a window and the other a light box cover to mimic the window on the other side. They are set in their frames in this photo with some plastic wrap to keep them secure till they are installed.
