Stack of kumiko frames going together.

More kumiko parts
Some of the kumiko parts for the last three orders- the labor intensive part of a shoji screen. Every little 'stick' needs to be planed-cut to length-notched-planed again-oiled-oiled again then burnished and assembled. There are two kumiko frames per shoji and the last step is to cut the laminated paper make the kumiko-paper-kumiko sandwich that will slide into the shoji frame. K18 is a more complicated pattern with many more pieces and each of the free floating ends needs to be detail trimmed as shown above.

Four Cherry shoji screens to span 134-1/2", only three pictured since we didn't have the room to spread them all out. We used 1 mm Chiri Warlon and Ebony door pulls.
 This batch of Cherry had alot of nice figure, Ed tried to show it better using a flash on the picture below. Definitely highlighted more of the figure in the wood.

Three Maple shoji screens to span 121" x 112-3/8" in front of a window wall with sliding glass doors. Each shoji is 41-3/4" x 111" x 1-3/8" - too large to photograph in the shop, let alone all together, so thankfully this morning was nice enough to get a shot outside. 
We used 1 mm White Warlon and large inlaid Ebony door pulls.


Elvis tried to step in for scale but it was a tad windy.. he kept blowing over!
 
And the crate - 48" x 120" x 14" - weighing in a 550 lbs.
