Heights Kitchen and Bath

Beech shoji with Cedar kumiko and 1 mm Bamboo Warlon with one of our fancy kumiko patterns. Only 3 of the 6 shoji are pictured, we didn't have room to set them all up.
The most vertical 'keys' we've ever built into this pattern.

With a dark and light background.

Many parts - many cuts.

Sapele Shoji screens with kumiko pattern #21 and inlaid Ebony door pulls. 
Four shoji to span 157", only three pictured since we don't have enough display room in the shop for all of them. 

Elvis stepped in for scale. He is 6' tall. 

Guest bath Shoji screens, both panels are hinged but the small panel has flush bolts installed, top and bottom, to fix it in place. Many detail images below in case our client needs them for install. Window grids have been added below.


Sapele Shoji screens for a hall closet with 1 mm Opaque White Warlon. 
Opaque is better for closets since it reflects less light back. The variety of items inside a closet will cause shadows in a more translucent paper.
You can see only a slight difference between the two backdrops.

Two smaller Shoji doors for a different closet.

This set of screens was special order without finish - the contractor will finish in black lacquer.  We shipped test pieces for them to practice with and to ensure they could mask off the Warlon successfully. This sort of thing demands a very careful masking job as unlike glass, the Warlon acrylic cannot be scraped off with a razor blade.
 The penny is for scale, just to show the accurate joinery.
