and I've been tardy at putting images on this blog so here are a few shoji for the month.
Cherry shoji with Port Orford Cedar kumiko and Warlon Amber Acrylic insert material. They are pocket doors so have wider stiles on the pocket side with inlaid edge pulls and door pulls. This is the second order from this client.. so nice .
These shoji are unfinished Port Orford Cedar with Port Orford Cedar kumiko for window shoji. They will be near each other so the horizontal kumiko needed to align even with the difference in heights.
Beech shoji, frames and kumiko, with Warlon Acrylic insert material and wood tracking for an outdoor barbeque area. They'll be finished for outdoor duty on-site.

So far news from friends and family back east has been good but so so many were not as lucky. I'm looking for ways to help and thought I'd share what I found.
Craig Newmark, of Craigslist, has put together a resource page for people looking for ways to help with disaster relief - http://www.crowdrise.com/sandyrelief .
American Red Cross - http://www.redcross.org/
You can check up on the charity of your choice using the Charity Navigator - http://www.charitynavigator.org/ . Not all charities will be listed but they do an admirable job of collating the information.
For area residents looking to volunteer - this Huffington Post page has what looks like a Twitter feed with schools and other organizations looking for help. Also noted are resources for people needing a place to stay.
Another Huffington Post page with information about FEMA programs and contact numbers.

Beech shoji with Warlon paper and 'faux' Rosewood inlaid door pulls. Bi-part install for a bedroom doorway where the shoji slide over bookcases to open.
Shoji for a double pocket between a bedroom and bath. The narrower shoji are stored behind these hence the shadow.
Shoji for a bi-pass 'barn door' type install also in the bath area.

Two of four Beech Shoji, approximately 45" x 79", with Port Orford Cedar kumiko, White Haruki Warlon paper and Japanese Cherry inlaid door pulls. Very pretty. I'd love to see all four spread out but don't have the room here. Maybe our clients will send us a picture?

Two of the four shoji built for an entry closet. Maple frames and kumiko with Cherry panels, 0.45 mm White Warlon paper and Japanese cherry inlaid door pulls.

Three of the four shoji panels for a window / light well. Beech shoji with Port Orford Cedar kumiko, Japanese cherry inlaid door pulls and 0.45 mm White Warlon paper. This kumiko pattern is a variation to compliment other shoji doors in this room.
Closer? shot of the shoji screens.

Fixed shoji panels with black satin finish, Warlon Acrylic insert material and a fancy kumiko pattern. Two different widths, the kumiko pattern's horizontal elements were kept in line as these shoji will be in view of each other. The blunt ends in the kumiko pattern are achieved by cutting the top kumiko notch on a diagonal so from the side you do not see the join.

Cherry shoji screens with Warlon Acrylic sheeting material for a bathroom wall / sliding door (above) and for the commode room (below). Above there are two fixed panels with one sliding; notice the difference in the upper rails. The upper rail height was increased on the fixed shoji so the horizontal kumiko aligned. These shoji will be installed on a short rise.
Below, since these shoji are in the same room, the lower door rail height was increased so the horizontal kumiko aligned with the fixed/sliding shoji. There were three different shoji heights in this one area so a bit tricky to work out...
Kitchen sliding shoji with Warlon laminated paper instead of the acrylic.
Last but not least the bedroom pocket shoji door.
